Islamabad: Pakistan’s Supreme Court Friday dismissed the review petitions filed by ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his children and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, challenging his disqualification in the Panama Papers scandal.
The court had reserved its verdict on the review petitions after the lawyers for all petitioners completed their arguments earlier in the day.
A five-judge Supreme bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa had taken up the petitions seeking review of the court’s July 28 judgement which disqualified 67-year-old Sharif for dishonesty and ordered the filing of corruption cases against him, his children Hussain, Hassan and Maryam Nawaz, son-in- law Mohammad Safdar and Dar.
“For reasons to be recorded later, all these review petitions are dismissed,” Justice Khosa announced. PTI
