Imran Khan, the opposition leader who pushed the hardest for Sharif to be investigated, said the premier would end up in jail, and vowed protests if he was not ousted by the court.
"Is not this shocking that each family member of Nawaz Sharif fattened their assets by an average of 16.6 during a single and his second year 1991/92-1992/93 in the Prime Minister House as per the Panama JIT findings", the statement quoted the PPP chairman as saying. The party leaders and spokespersons were also briefed about the stance on Panama case.
On July 10, a three-judge bench of the Supreme Court began examining a report submitted by the JIT over the money laundering allegations. The assets surfaced when Panama Papers leak past year revealed that they were managed through offshore companies owned by Sharif's children. They have described the investigation as an attempt to derail the democratic process and claim Sharif has been punished for both making Pakistan a nuclear power and for starting the China Pakistan Economic Corridor, which is expected to bring over $US50 billion investment in Pakistan.
Pakistan Army's spokesman Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said that the joint investigation team was formed by Supreme Court, "which did its job honestly". Marriyum said that the court is not bound to accept the recommendations of the JIT report.
In April, Sharif narrowly escaped disqualification after the Supreme Court ruled there was insufficient evidence to remove him - by a 2-3 split - over the Panama Papers leak.

He would also ensure that the NFL would begin laying its claim on a lucrative spot on the Mexico City Sporting Calendar. The Tickets sold out in a paltry fifteen minutes, and there was ostensible enthusiasm for the match in the country.

To a question, he said PPP who was founder of corruption in the country, was also talking against it. The document was typed in Microsoft's Calibri font.
Now those opponents sense an opportunity to scupper any plans to build a Sharif dynasty around her after a Supreme Court-appointed panel accused her of committing a criminal offense in a 254-page report leaked to the media this week. "The language used in the report reflects their malicious intention towards the Sharif family", she added. The investigation is particularly damaging for Sharif's daughter, Maryam Nawaz Sharif, who is seen as his political heir.
The findings of the JIT are not just damning for the ruling party, but also for the country's democracy.
Two judges of the court have already declared the Prime Minister as not being truthful. It then ordered a probe by the JIT, which included representatives from military intelligence agencies. However, the family wants to retain him as Sharif's counsel. "Army has no role in the process". Every civilian government in Pakistan has been undermined by its own domestic performance and the army's overarching presence in governance.
However, the hearing was adjourned for the next day with the observation of Justice Ejaz that they do not wish to waste the time of the court and nation.
