ISLAMABAD: State Minister for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Tuesday that all the wealth statements and tax records of the prime minister are available on the government?s websites.

Addressing the media following the hearing of the Supreme Court?s special implementation bench in the Panama Papers case, Aurangzeb said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif made history by presenting himself for accountability in front of the Joint Investigation Team.

The minister said the JIT exceeded its mandate, adding that the documents presented by the investigators are unverified.

?This proves that an attempt was made to make a false case against the prime minister,? she stated.

The minister said that the JIT did not approach any foreign government to acquire evidence and instead relied on a dubious law firm, owned by the JIT head?s cousin. ?Such evidence is inadmissible in court,? she claimed.

?Not a single penny has ever been misappropriated by Nawaz Sharif during any of his terms in office,? the minister vowed.

Aurangzeb said the prime minister, with the support of the people, will win another term in office in the next general elections. 

The Supreme Court's three-member special implementation bench heard arguments from the petitioners on Monday and the prime minister's counsel on Tuesday.

The hearing was later adjourned till Wednesday.
