ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s children on Wednesday filed an application for submission of additional documents as a “counter reply” against the testimonies submitted by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in the Panama Leaks case.

They contended that the allegation in the PTI’s petition was related to flat No16, 16A, 17 and 17A at Avenfield House, Park Lane, London. The PTI on the basis of the London flats is seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his son-in-law Safdar Abbasi as members of the National Assembly.

The prime minister’s daughter, Maryam Nawaz, and his sons, Hassan and Hussain Nawaz said that PTI in its petition alleged that PM has not declared properties owned by Mariam Nawaz, ostensibly being dependant on him, and in tax returns and the statement of assets and liabilities filed with the Election Commission.

The PM’s children contended they have already submitted a concise statement and a supplemental concise statement refuting the petitioners’ allegations. They said the documents filed against them do not contain any substantiated and admissible proof . The general allegations made and the documents appended with the PTI and AML applications for additional documents were specifically and vehemently denied for being incorrect, misconceived and inadmissible, they said.

They stated that “in case the petitioner intends to rely on any documents appended with the applications for additional documents or to agitate matters, which are not related to the London flats and are not subject matter of the proceedings, then they reserve the right to submit appropriate replies to each such document/allegation and to raise all appropriate objections/ground with respect to such matter”.
