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".

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.
