The Supreme Court bench established for hearing of Hudaibiya Paper Mills case has been dissolved as Justice Saeed Ahmad Khosa excused himself from hearing the case. 

According to details Justice Khosa remarked that his name is being put in the bench by mistake of office. "I ordered to open this case and wrote 14 paragraphs regarding Hudaibiya Paper Mills," he remarked. 

He further said that he has ordered NAB to reopen the case. "It seems that office has not read by Panama verdict," he further remarked. 

Furthermore, NAB prosecutor requested the Supreme Court to give date for hearing in next week. 

The application for reestablishment of the bench has been sent to Chief Justice of Pakistan. 

Hudaibiya Paper Mills case is about alleged fraud of over 1,242 million—an amount that makes it bigger in scale than Panama Papers case.

The case started in March 2000 when the NAB authorities moved a reference against Hudaibiya Papers Mills.

Besides his other relatives and associates, ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his two children – Maryam and Hussain – are among the accused.

In contrast with Panama case, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his political heir-apparent Hamza Shehbaz is also accused in this case – something that gives a new dimension to the ongoing process of accountability of the ruling family, making it even wider and more troubling for the Sharifs.

Incumbent Finance Minister Ishaq Dar was also nominated in the NAB’s reference for opening fictitious (benami) foreign currency accounts to help the family commit fraud.

Dar turned approver in the case, but later retracted his statement given against the Sharifs claiming it was extracted under duress.
