Sheikh Rasheed Remarks on Mayam Nawaz in Supreme Court
The legal representative of the Sharif family, Salman Aslam Butt, presented the facts in defense. He stated that Hassan Nawaz has been running business lawfully for the last 22 years while Hussian for the last 16 years. Both Hassan and Hussain have rejected allegations of corruption hurled against them by the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan.
The PM’s counsel added that until 2011 Maryam Nawaz was dependent on her father, and that she does not hold any offshore company, and is a trustee of Nielsen and Nescoll Ltd. During the courts hearing, the government sought two weeks to submit records of required documents when Justice Arif Saeed Khosa asked Salman Butt to ‘’satisfy’’ the court that money was sent abroad through legal means. The court ordered the PM family’s legal representative to submit evidence within seven days, stating that the court intends to reach conclusion regarding the case. The court has decided to defer the proceedings by adjourning the case till November 15, while directing orders for all parties to submit evidences.
The apex court had last week ordered the PM’s counsel to submit the replies of the remaining respondents: Maryam, Hassan and Hussain Nawaz early morning on Monday (today) as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and retired Capt Mohammad Safdar, son-in-law of Mr Sharif, had already submitted their replies.
