ISLAMABAD: A larger bench headed by Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali resumed hearing of the Panama Leaks case on Tuesday.
During proceedings, Justice Azmat Saeed said documents submitted by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had no relation with the case. “The documents also include newspaper clippings. The petitioner himself has buried the truth,” Justice Azmat remarked.
The court maintained that one side had submitted 700 pages while the other had submitted 1600 pages. “We are not a computer that we scan the documents in a minute,” Justice Azmat Saeed said.
“Why are you wasting the court’s time with tales from the Arabian Nights? Can we announce death sentence over a newspaper story which says Allah Ditta killed Allah Rakha?” he asked PTI’s lawyer Hamid Khan.
The apex court maintained that it will not investigate corruption. “If someone has done corruption the lower courts can take care of it.”
Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali also expressed displeasure over the documents submitted by PTI which consisted of 686 pages.
Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali said that he wanted to keep focus on the London flat. He said that the parties had submitted too many documents in the court. “We wanted to give the verdict in two or three days. But we have received too many documents.”
He added that it was difficult to differentiate between real and fake documents. “In this situation we might not be able to give a verdict in six months.
