ISLAMABAD: The leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) spoke to the media during the recess of the Supreme Courtâs hearing of the Panama Papers case on Tuesday.
âThe matter seems to be going towards the imprisonment of Hussain, Hasan, and Maryam Nawaz,â said PTI Spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry. âOnly a miracle can save Nawaz Sharifâs family from 14 years imprisonment and 10 years of disqualification.â
While speaking about the proceedings of the JIT being made public, Chaudhry said the videos should be aired in cinemas, which will also help the film industry prosper. âIf the video of Captain (retd) Safdarâs JIT proceedings are aired, the tickets would be sold in black.â
PTI senior leader Naeemul Haq also addressed the media outside the Supreme Court. He said things appear grim for the Sharif family as the premier’s disqualification is all but likely now.Â
After the PTI leaders, PML-Nâs Daniyal Aziz said the demand from resignation that Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto has made seems to be coming from the PTI.
However, he added, PTI itself is not working for accountability in the province under its governance i.e. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. âEhtesab Commission in KP has been shut down.â
The Supreme Court heard arguments from the petitioners on Monday and the prime minister’s counsel on Tuesday.
The hearing was later adjourned till Wednesday.Â
Following the adjournment, PTI Information Secretary Shafqat Mehmood said the Sharif familyâs corruption has been laid bare in front of the Supreme Court today.
PTIâs Fawad Chaudhry also addressed the media following Mehmood, saying the benchâs reference to sending the case to the National Accountability Court shows that is where the case will eventually be sent to.Â
Chaudhry said the matter will be settled in the premierâs favour even now if he submits the relevant documents.
He claimed the prime minister has a week or two left in office, and advised the people to begin preparing for celebrations.Â
