  15. ISLAMABAD: Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, who is set to become Pakistan´s interim prime minister, is the former federal minister for petroleum and natural resources, and a businessman who launched the country´s most successful private airline. Considered highly intelligent and a long-time loyalist of Nawaz Sharif, the former prime minister who was ousted by the Supreme Court on Friday, the 58-year-old Abbasi will act as a placeholder for the Sharif dynasty. He is due to be rubber stamped in a parliamentary vote as prime minister until Sharif´s younger brother Shehbaz, chief minister of Punjab, can be elected to the National Assembly and take over the leadership. Abbasi was appointed oil minister when Nawaz Sharif won his third election in 2013. Educated in the US at George Washington University, he was born in Karachi but is a member of the National Assembly from Murree. Abbasi worked in the US and Saudi Arabia as an electrical engineer before joining politics after his father, a minister in General Zia´s government, was killed when an ammunition dump exploded in Rawalpindi in 1988. Abbasi has been elected six times as a member of the National Assembly since then, and has previously served as minister for commerce and defence production. He was the chairman of national flag carrier Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) from 1997 to 1999, until General Pervez Musharraf overthrew Sharif´s second government. Abbasi was arrested after the coup and imprisoned for two years before being released. In 2003, he setup a private airline Air Blue, the country´s most successful private airline and challenger to PIA.
  16. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) will meet today (Saturday) to decide the prime ministerial candidate to replace Nawaz Sharif, who was disqualified as the prime minister in a landmark verdict by the Supreme Court on the Panama Papers case. Following his ousting, Sharif met with senior party leaders and recommended his brother, CM Punjab Shehbaz Sharif as his replacement as Pakistan?s PM.

Sharif stepped down as the prime minister of Pakistan on Friday after being disqualified from holding public office by the Supreme Court. Announcing its verdict, the five-member bench unanimously disqualified Sharif for failing to disclose his un-withdrawn receivables constituting assets from UAE-based Capital FZE in his nominations papers for the 2013 General Election, stating that this meant he was not ?honest? and ?truthful?, as per the Constitution.

In the verdict, all five judges ruled to send references against Sharif, his children Maryam, Hussain and Hasan, son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar and Ishaq Dar to an accountability court.
  17. ISLAMABAD: PMl-N lawmakers on Friday expressed reservations over the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif and said it is likely that review petition will be filed. "This decision is not acceptable and we will file a review petition in court," said Saad Rafique. The PML-N leaders also said the removal of the premier was not on the basis of Panama Papers. The press conference was held by Barrister Zafarullah, Ahsan Iqbal, Saad Rafique, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Zaid Hamid. "Nawaz Sharif was not disqualified on the basis of Panama Papers," said Saad Rafique. He added that it is not the first time the PML-N has been made to bear the brunt of such tactics. "Imran Khan, you are nothing more than a pawn." Rafique added that Imran has tried repeatedly to oust the PML-N government and has used every trick that he could. The minister claimed that Nawaz and the PML-N have been punished for bringing China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) to the country, "just in the same manner we were punished for conducting nuclear tests in 1998". "We want civil supremacy in Pakistan and will not go to the court of the people," said the PML-N stalwart. 'Will defend mandate of people' Ahsan Iqbal, during the press conference, said his confidence in his leadership has increased ten-fold after the apex court verdict. Iqbal said that Nawaz during the meeting today clearly said that the mandate of the people will be defended and the PML-N will complete its tenure. "The supporters of PML-N should be proud of their leader, as no one has undergone as much scrutiny as Nawaz Sharif and yet nothing was proven against him except that he could have received money from his son but did not," said Iqbal. He further said the PTI had alleged billions in corruption, but their claims were not proven. "After allegations of billions made through corruption, he was disqualified over Rs0.2 million." Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that they have now put their case infront of the people as the people should be aware that there was no corruption. He also said that the decision will now be challenged on legal forums now. "Musharraf tried for eight years but could not prove any corruption against Nawaz Sharif." "History will not accept the decision," said Abbasi. "Since 1947 till date, not one prime minister of Pakistan has completed the five year tenure. Call it irony of fate or mistakes on one ground or the other," said the Barrister Zafarullah.
  18. Opponents of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz shout slogans after the Supreme Court´s decision to disqualify Nawaz, in Islamabad.

Some party workers also burnt tyres on Jinnah Road, blocking the route for traffic. In Islamabad, PML-N workers confronted those from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf outside the Supreme Court. There too workers chanted slogans against each other?s parties. On the other hand, PML-N workers had started gathering at Shahra-e-Dastoor in Islamabad before the verdict was announced. The party workers were holding placards inscribed with slogans against Imran Khan.

  19. Journalists protests at PML-N press conference ISLAMABAD: The press conference of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders was marred by journalists protesting against the manhandling of two journalists at the PIMS hospital in Islamabad. Journalists resorted to protesting and chanting slogans against manhandling of two journalists at the PIMS hospital allegedly by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) for reportedly taking pictures and making videos of Securities & Exchange Commission of Pakistan chairman Zafar Hijazi. Minister of State for Capital Administration and Development Division Tariq Fazal Chaudhry assured the media personnel that action would be taken against manhandling of a woman journalist by the ?FIA at the PIMS hospital?.

  20. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Fawad Chaudhry said on Saturday that the money trail for Imran Khan?s Bani Gala residence was submitted to the court after gathering details from London, adding that the party has now allayed the concerns of rival Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz. The PTI leaders were addressing a press conference in Islamabad. While making a comparison between Prime Minister?s children and the PTI chief, Chaudhry said that Nawaz?s son has a Rs6,000 million flat while Imran owned a five million rupees flat. Today, Imran Khan?s counsel submitted to the Supreme Court details of his flat in London and cricket contracts, defending him in the foreign funding case. In 1984, the documents read, Imran mortgaged a one-bedroom apartment in London through Royal Trust in the name of Niazi Services Limited. Imran Khan submits details of money earned by playing cricket abroad He played for English counties between 1977 and 1988, becoming highest paid overseas player by 1980 The apartment was purchased for GBP 117,500 on mortgage on 20 years and initial down payment of GBP 61,000 to Royal Trust. As per the statement, Imran made the payment from his savings and earnings he got while playing for Sussex Country Cricket and Kerry Packer series. According to the documents submitted to the Supreme Court, Imran managed to pay off the mortgage well before its due date as he had a benefit year in 1987 when he earned GBP 190,000 and his savings. Since Imran made all the money while playing as a professional cricketer, the statement reads, there could be no money laundering at any time.
  21. ISLAMABAD: PML-N leader Talal Chaudhry on Saturday claimed that the PML-N can never be divided and the party remains strong under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. ?Whenever the PML-N has come under pressure, our opponents think that the party will be weakened and divided. During such times we are more united than ever under Nawaz Sharif?s leadership.? Chaudhry?s remarks come after Leader of the Opposition Khursheed Shah said the premier needs to decide by tonight regarding his resignation. ?I suggest that Shah think over his statement as neither has he given the prime minister this power nor he can threaten to take it,? said the PML-N leader. He added that it has become a norm for political opponents of Nawaz Sharif to ask for his resignation. ?We have said it before; the prime minister will not step down from his post.? The Supreme Court on Friday reserved its judgement in the Panama Papers implantation case. The PML-N held a meeting following the development and decided the verdict of the apex court would be accepted even if it was unfavourable.

The Supreme Court bench today resumed hearing the case after the petitioners presented their arguments in favour of the Joint Investigation Team?s (JIT) final report a day earlier. Bench to review material before deciding on PM's disqualification, NAB reference At Monday's hearing, petitioners? counsels pleaded for PM?s disqualification The three-member special Supreme Court bench hearing the Panama Papers case observed that it would examine all the material and then decide on disqualifying the premier or sending the matter to an accountability court. PM's imprisonment, disqualification highly likely: Fawad Chaudhry PTI leaders lashed out against the ruling party during recess outside the Supreme Court where the defence was presenting its arguments. ?The matter seems to be going towards the imprisonment of Hussain, Hasan, and Maryam Nawaz,? said PTI Spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry, adding, ?only a miracle can save Nawaz Sharif?s family from 14 years imprisonment and 10 years of disqualification.? Panamagate about power, not accountability: Talal PML-N leader Talal Chaudhry on Tuesday declared the Panama case saga a ?game of power, not accountability?. ?Those who could not become ministers or prime ministers are sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with the court. This [Panama case] game is not about accountability, it?s about power,? said Talal, as he lashed out at opponents while addressing media on day two of the Panama case hearing. Taking aim at the JIT, the PML-N leader said the team collected incomplete and faulty material. ?The JIT itself kept violating the law,? he alleged.

Nawaz (PML-N) leader Daniyal Aziz said on Monday that the report of the Panama case Joint Investigation (JIT) team was not complete and had ignored several main facts.

He added that now even the judges had raised questions about the verification of the documents. According to Aziz, the JIT report contained ambiguities, ignored facts and used the words most likely.
  25. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders said on Saturday that the Joint Investigation Team in its final report to the Supreme Court failed to accuse Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of corruption or money laundering even after trying its best. The PML-N leaders were addressing a press conference, where they read out passages from the JIT final report to emphasise the parts supporting the stance of the Sharif family. PML-N leader Daniyal Aziz said the report based its findings on the phrase ?most likely?. The phrases, ?most likely? and ?it seems?, do not suffice to hold the premier responsible, said Aziz. He said that only one paragraph describes Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif?s relation to the London flat, which is also not definite as the link has been drawn from an interview. ?A short stay in the flat does not denote ownership,? he said. A media trial of Maryam Nawaz was carried out but the Supreme Court verdict did not mention anything about her. PML-N leader Tariq Fazal Chaudhry said that the party would fully pursuit the legal battle on the JIT report in the apex court and would emerge victorious. Post-JIT: Legal experts say PM likely to be disqualified JIT submitted its final probe report to the Panama case implementation bench on Monday On July 10, the JIT submitted its report, spread over 10 volumes, to the Supreme Court's special implementation bench. The JIT in its final probe report into the Sharif family?s assets held that the prime minister and his three children ? Maryam, Hussain and Hasan ? have accumulated wealth beyond their own known sources of income. The Supreme Court's special implementation bench has set July 17 as the next date of hearing in the Panama Papers case.
