ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan on Wednesday said that crisis was not over for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif despite the postponement of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)’s November 2 ‘lockdown’ of Islamabad following the apex court’s decision of appointing inquiry commission for Panama Papers leaks.
Leader of the Opposition in Senate said that Supreme Court’s devised commission should investigate Panama Papers under inquiry bill.
He said that whether the crisis for Nawaz Sharif has diverted or not that will be revealed after Supreme Court proceedings.
“It would be assessed only after seeing ToRs that what will be the outcome of inquiry”, he added.
Nawaz Sharif has been under growing pressure from opposition parties to hold an independent investigation into allegations of corruption against the prime minister’s family.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court began hearing a case into the “Panama Papers” leaks and offered to form a commission to investigate revelations that Sharif’s children held offshore bank accounts.
“We are determined to resolve this issue. We will solve it and we will solve it as soon as possible. Now the highest forum in the country in regards to dispute resolution has taken up this matter, so now you hold your positions, please restrain,” Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, one of the five judges hearing the case, told the court.
The ruling was applauded by Khan, who held a press conference at his home on the outskirts of Islamabad to declare victory.
