Islamabad [Pakistan]: The Pakistan Supreme Court has asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family to present documents related with the distribution of properties after the demise of Mian Muhammad Sharif in 2004.
A five-judge bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa asked Sharif’s counsel to submit documents relating to the settlement of Sharif properties, reports the Express Tribune.
The counsel for Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz, Shahid Hamid, during the hearing alleged that forged documents were submitted by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to establish that she is the beneficial owner of London flats.
Observing that forgery is a question of fact, Justice Ijazul Ahsan, said there are two aspects to the issue, one being Maryam’s dependency on her father and other that she acted as the front man for Sharif and all his properties.
Maryam in her written reply submitted to the apex court on Tuesday once again rejected the allegations that she was a beneficial owner of the London properties.
She also denied having correspondence between the Financial Investigation Agency of the British Virgin Islands and Mossack Fonseca.
German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung had tweeted on Monday documents linking the role of Prime Minister Sharif’s daughter Maryam in the Panama Papers scandal.
The newspaper tweeted the attachments purportedly showing her involvement with Minerva Financial Services.
The tweet was accompanied by a document titled “Minerva Financial Services Limited Personal Information”, which contains the personal details of Maryam Safdar. (ANI)
