Pak SC special bench to monitor Panamagate JIT proceedings

Islamabad [Pakistan], May 2 : Pakistan's Supreme Court on Tuesday announced the formation of a special bench to closely monitor the working of the joint investigation team (JIT) in Panamagate.

The Dawn has reported that apex court has also appointed a coordinator to manage all communication between the special bench and the JIT.

The case filed in the apex court to disqualify Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for allegedly misleading the nation on his family's involvement in corrupt practices, as outlined in the Panamagate scandal, ended on April 20 with the court ordering the formation of a JIT to probe how the family's money was transferred to Qatar.

The final verdict was split 3-2 in the five-judge bench. The special bench of the Supreme Court has been constituted to examine the case under Section 184/3 of the Constitution.

The bench comprises Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, Justice Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan..
