ISLAMABAD -  As the Supreme Court will resume hearing in the Panama Papers case today, a spokesperson of Sharif family clarified yesterday that they had not submitted any new documents in the court.

Media reports earlier in the day said the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s sons on Monday had filed additional documents carrying the price tag of London flats and the date of their purchase. The reports also suggested that the new documents contradicted the earlier stance of the PM’s children.

But the spokesperson told that no new documents were submitted after November 30, according to Dunya News website. The unnamed spokesperson also clarified that even on Nov 30, only the sale deed of apartments was submitted.

The clarification from the Sharif family said the documents showed that 20 years back, the price of apartments was 1.6 million pounds, which is one-tenth of the price told by Imran Khan.

A five-member SC bench headed by Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali will take up petitions of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, the Jamaat-e-Islami and Tariq Asad seeking an investigation into the allegations levelled against the premier and his family in Panama Papers for having offshore companies through ill-gotten money.

JI Ameer Sirajul Haq last week filed an application and asked the Supreme Court to appoint an inquiry and trial commission and declare Panama leaks its basic document.

He demanded that all persons indicated in the Panama Papers along with their families, children, companies and business entities be made respondents, and they should be ordered to submit a reply in their own defence and in rebuttal to allegations mentioned in Panama Papers.

The JI also asked the court to direct the Federal Board of Revenue and Election Commission of Pakistan to submit copies of tax return including details of properties, assets etc., in and out of the country, along with copies of documents and papers before Enquiry & Trial Commission within specified period.

The PTI so far had relied on newspaper cuttings and the prime minister’s speeches, which he made on the floor of the National Assembly. According to the PM speeches, the London flats were purchased after selling the Jeddah Steel Mills, which was established in 1974.

However, a letter from Qatari prince, presented to the court, states that the flats were bought with the investment made by PM’s father Mian Muhammad Sharif in Al-Thani Company, Qatar.

The court had asked the PTI to prove that the London flats were in the possession of the Nawaz Sharif’s sons before 2006.

The trust deed which the respondents submitted was not registered and stamped and a bench member had expressed concern over it and had asked the respondents to produce more documents.
