No breakthrough in Panama Case verdict: Aitezaz Ahsan

"The nation is expecting some sort of judgement which will change the course of history in Pakistan", senior Supreme Court lawyer S.M. Zafar told AFP, though he said it was hard to predict the verdict. The judges come out in the open, if they want to discuss it.

A five-member bench of the apex court led by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa will announce the judgment at 2 p.m. local time (0900GMT) in the capital Islamabad.

According to GEO TV, Talal Chaudhry, a prominent leader of Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz said: "There is no chance that decision will come against our leadership".

"Imran Khan has clearly stated that we will accept the decision of the Supreme Court, but we believe that enough evidence has been presented to remove the prime minister and that a verdict should be reached that is based on the evidence".

Legal expert and senior leader of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Senator Aitezaz Ahsan Tuesday played down the hype surrounding the Panama Leaks verdict, saying there won't be any major breakthrough.

The other group in the PML-N was reportedly against going for early election.

We can be that team to try and frustrate them and put pressure on them, especially in their own building in the next game. The Nashville Predators took a commanding 3-0 series lead by edging the Blackhawks 3-2 in overtime Monday night.

Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said in case the decision somehow affects the premier, the PML-N should go into polls as per scheduled in 2018.

Nisar observed it is abundantly clear that Nawaz Sharif is no more honest and trustworthy (Sadiq-o-Ameen); however, he hoped that the court will deliver a verdict worth being remembered for centuries.

Opposition parties in Pakistan saw the published documents as proof of alleged money laundering done by the premier. The case stems from documents leaked from the Panama-based Mossack Fonseca law firm appeared to show that Sharif's daughter and two sons owned offshore holding companies registered in the British Virgin Islands and used them to buy properties in London.

The veteran PPP leader said that the Panama Leaks wasn't about any individual or a family.

A plea has been filed by ML Sharma in Supreme Court demanding a thorough court probe into the case. The Bench, which also comprised Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice M.M. Shantanagoudar, asked the ASG to inform about the decision and posted the matter for hearing in July. The multi-investigation agency subsequently conducted a probe into the Panama leaks and submitted the six reports in a sealed cover today.

The petition had alleged that Panama papers included the names of almost 500 Indians, including celebrities and industrialists, who have allegedly parked funds in offshore accounts in transactions brokered by the law firm.
