ISLAMABAD: Here are seven hard-hitting points contained in the detailed Panamagate review judgment case released by the Supreme Court of Pakistan, on Tuesday.

Unbelievable that Nawaz did not understand a simple principle of accounting

Where he has been neck deep in business and politics ever since early 80s’ it is unbelievable that he did not understand the simple principle of accounting that his accrued and accumulated salary of six and a half years was his asset and liability of the company he was an employee of.

Nawaz Sharif was given a fair chance to vindicate himself

We not only gave him a fair chance to vindicate his position before this Court, heard him at length for almost two days but also accepted whatever he stated about work permit, his employment contract with Capital FZE Jabal Ali, his position as the Chairman of the Board and his entitlement to salary which according to him was not withdrawn.

The mere fact that we did not agree with the petitioner when he stated that his unwithdrawn salary is not an asset would not amount to denial of a fair chance to vindicate his position.

Important state institutions have been seized, captured or subjugated. 

We thus with our eyes open and minds awake would not let everything go into the hands of the cronies and collaborators for being taken to a dead end.

We could not shut our eyes when asset arising out of Iqamah surfaced

We could not have shut our eyes when an asset of the petitioner arising out of IQAMA (work permit) having surfaced during the investigation of the case and admitted by him to be his in no uncertain terms, was not found to have been disclosed in his nomination papers in terms of Section 12(2)(f) of ROPA.

Much higher level of integrity is expected of  the holder of the highest elected office of the country. But to our dismay and disappointment the petitioner has not been fair and forthright in answering
any of the queries made during the course of hearing.

What the judgment said about Calibri font:-

Since the Prime Minister of the country is thought to be the ethos personified of the nation he represents at national and international level, denying an asset established or defending a trust deed written in 2006 in a font becoming commercial in 2007 is below his dignity and decorum of the office he holds.

Unbelievable that Nawaz did not understand the simple principle of accounting

But where he has been neck deep in business and politics ever since early 80s’ it is unbelievable that he did not understand the simple principle of accounting that his accrued and accumulated salary of six and a half years was his asset and liability of the company he was an employee of.

Even otherwise, this argument cannot be given much weight when it has not been pleaded by the petitioner that the omission to mention the asset was accidental, inadvertent or unintentional.

We cannot let cronies and collaborators take everything to a dead end

We thus with our eyes open and minds awake would not let everything go into the hands of the cronies and collaborators for being taken to a dead end. Once things have been streamlined, they have to be taken to their logical conclusion.
