Similarly, a document on Gulf Steel Mills submitted by Sharif's son Hussain Nawaz was identified as forged by the Government of Dubai.

The apex court heard the Panamagate scandal case for the fourth consecutive day since the hearing began on Monday.

The JIT did not accept the verified documents provided by the Hussain Nawaz in this regard, he added.

The bench observed that the "public officer holder" will be asked about the money trail of the London properties that exists in the case if Sharif's children are unable to reveal it.

20 de julio de 2017, 07:49Islamabad, July 20 (Prensa Latina) The Pakistani government and opposition are facing the Supreme Court today, which has opened a hearing on a corruption case against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Justice Ijaz remarked that question regarding funds in Jeddah has been asking for over a year, but no reply is being given.

Raja argued that JIT itself decided that there was no need to interview the Qatari prince, adding that further investigation should be carried out.

When the matter goes to the relevant forum, the clarification will come too, Raja responded.

The JIT said that it had collected evidence directly from the Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (Jafza), the concerned regulator, which confirmed that Nawaz Sharif not only served as the head of the company's board, but also drew a salary of 10,000 dirhams between Aug 7, 2006 and April 20, 2014 - almost a year after assuming office. The documents contain two letters sent to the JIT.

Geo News quoted Justice Ejaz as saying that if there's no evidence that a wrongdoing was committed then there is also no proof that the right thing was done.

The minister said that while Imran was fighting a case for grabbing power, the Prime Minister was fighting a case for the supremacy of law and constitution, trust of people repeatedly reposed in him, economic progress and prosperity of the country, CPEC and above all the elimination of the scourge of terrorism.
