Panamagate: Nawaz files second petition terming court’s orders violation of fundamental rights


LAHORE – Discontented by ouster, former Prime Minister Nawaz Shairf on Saturday filed second review petition against disqualification and National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) references in Supreme Court (SC).

The petition urged apex court to quash July-28 judgment in Panama Leaks Case. In his first review petition, Nawaz Sharif had challenged the five-member bench’s verdict which brought a premature end to his premiership.

Nawaz, in new petition, stated that though FZE company was not mentioned in petitions filed against him yet he was disqualified over not withdrawing salary from the aforementioned company.

The petitioner further pledged that law did not allow monitoring of trail court’s proceedings and stated that order of completing probe against Sharif family within six months would affect proceedings.

On July-28 this year, country’s top court had ousted Nawaz Sharif in Panama Leaks Case and had instructed the accountability watchdog to file references against Sharif family.
