ISLAMABAD: Whether to make a commission on Panamagate scandal or not? The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Wednesday sought suggestions from petitioners and defendants before adjourning the case hearing until December 9.
A five-judge larger bench of the Supreme Court was of the view that the prime minister must answer to clarify his stance in Panamagate case.
“The commission will be made on the basis of accusations levelled by PTI and will be headed by a Supreme Court judge,” said Justice Pakistan Anwar Zaheer Jamali.
He said, provided if the parties agreed on a commission, it would give petitioners and defendants, equal opportunity to present their case and will also get assistance from all institutions.
“Commission will file its report in front of the Supreme Court,” said Justice Pakistan Anwar Zaheer Jamali.
In a short party meeting after the case hearing, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) showed reservations regarding conditions on which the Panamagate commission would be made and its terms of references (TORs).
PTI maintained that the apex court must clarify and explain details for the commission first.
