PM ‘is not honest with nation’: Justice Khosa

Source: ET


Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, who was leading the five-judge bench on the Panamagate, declared on Thursday that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif “is not honest with the Supreme Court and nation”.

Justice Khosa, while authoring the 192-page judgment, disqualified the prime minister, but his views belong to the minority opinion and, therefore, have no binding effect on anyone.

The judge observed that the prime minister had deliberately suppressed relevant facts or he had conveniently allowed himself to go along with a false story advanced by his children.

“Apart from that the alternate story about ‘purchase’ of the relevant properties in London propounded by him, which runs completely contrary to the story about acquisition of the said properties on the basis of a settlement of the business in Qatar, had not been substantiated by respondent No 1 (PM) through any tangible material,” he further observed.
