Sharifs win 1st Panamagate legal battle

by admin

ISLAMABAD: After almost five years, the Sharif family has won its first legal battle in the Panamagate case with the Islamabad High Court on Thursday setting aside the conviction of PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz and her husband Captain (retd) Mohammad Safdar in the Avenfield reference.

The Panamagate proceedings were initiated by the Supreme Court on a constitutional petition filed by PTI chairman and deposed prime minister Imran Khan in October 2016.

Imran had sought the disqualification of then premier Nawaz Sharif on account of not disclosing his London properties. According to the PTI chief, Nawaz was the real beneficiary of the London properties.

The Sharif family faced a tough time in the Panamagate case on account of flaws in their legal strategy.

First, Nawaz had defended his purchase of foreign properties in his speeches – an uncalled-for move.
