Pakistan’s Supreme Court on Monday resumed the hearing of high-profile Panamagate graft case against prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family, a week after a probe panel in its final report recommended filing of a graft case against him and his children. Strict security measures are in place in and around the Supreme Court. Around 700 policemen, along with Rangers personnel and officials of the local administration, have been deployed for the hearing. It recommended filing of a corruption case against him and his children after finding “significant” disparities in their income and actual wealth.The six-member Joint Investigation Team (JIT), set up by the apex court to investigate charges of money laundering against 67-year-old Sharif, submitted its 60-day investigation report to the court on 10 July. Major opposition political parties have asked Sharif to step down and stay away from power until his name was cleared. However, Sharif has rejected JIT findings and refused to resign by saying that he was not charged of any specific crime.
