SC grants Sharif family’s plea, says five-judge bench to hear review petitions


ISLAMABAD: Hearing the appeal filed by Sharif family, the three-judge bench of Supreme Court of Pakistan Tuesday approved their prayer and ruled the matter will be heard by the five-member bench that announced the July 28 verdict in Panama Papers case.

The children of former Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Monday filed a petition to postpone hearing of Panama papers case review petition fixed for hearing on Tuesday before the three-member bench and prayed the court to fix the matter before the five-member larger bench.

The petition submitted by Advocate Salman Akram Raja through Advocate-on-Record (AOR) Syed Riffat Hussain Shah stated that the review petition had been filed against the three-member bench’s judgment of July 28, as a matter of abundant caution to obviate the possibility of a technical objection in case the five-member bench, which had passed as per this court’s record, the final order of the court dated July 28 in the titled case, upholds the petitioner’s objections raised in the earlier/already filed review petition No. 308/2017 to the effect that the five-member bench did not have the jurisdiction to announce the judgment.


The petition stated that the legal proposition as to whether the five-member bench had the jurisdiction to pass the final order of the court dated July 28 in light of grounds taken in the review petition No. 308/2017, falls for determination and can only be adjudicated by the five-member bench, which actually passed the said order and not by a three-member bench. – Samaa/agencies
