ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb hit out at the opposition on Friday, saying that no one is immune from accountability.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his sons did not claim exemption available to them and instead presented themselves for accountability, she reminded the opposition while addressing media outside the Supreme Court premises here.

Aurangzeb expressed confidence that the Supreme Court will decide the Panama Papers case strictly in accordance with the law and constitution. She said that despite a lengthy and minute investigation process, there was no evidence to prove allegations of corruption, commission, kickbacks or misuse of power by the elected Prime Minister.

She reiterated that the Sharif family submitted all the required documents before the apex court bench.

Replying to a question, the minister said PML-N fully respects the judges; however, it has reservations over the JIT report submitted to the Supreme Court, she said.

PML-N leader Daniyal Aziz meanwhile said there should be across-the-board accountability.

Speaking to media earlier today, Aziz took aim at Pakistan Peoples Party saying that those talking about accountability were only giving the ?impression? that they cared about accountability.

?PPP is talking about accountability but at the same time it is trying to pass a bill against NAB in Sindh,? he said. 

The special implementation bench of the Supreme Court reserved its decision in the Panama Papers case on Friday, after hearing arguments over the final report of the JIT.

Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed remarked that the bench would review the matter of the prime minister?s disqualification.
