Panamagate case: Court asks Sharif lawyers to establish ownership of Minerva

The Supreme Court continued hearing the Panamagate case on Friday for the third consecutive day.

Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, who was heading the larger bench hearing the case, cautioned the defence that if the Sharif lawyers were unable to establish ownership of Minerva Financial Services Limited, the court would have to ‘imagine’ that what Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) lawyers claim is true.

PTI has been trying to establish that Maryam Nawaz, and not her brother Hussain Nawaz as claimed by the party earlier, was the beneficial owner of Minerva which held Nescoll Limited and Nielson Enterprises Limited — the owners of the four London flats.

Justice Khosa warned those involved in the case that the court has the power to summon past records and should not be deemed powerless.

PTI counsel Naeem Bokhari submitted an interview given by Haroon Pasha, the prime minister’s financial adviser, as evidence in court. Maryam Nawaz’s reply was also submitted in court today.
