IK rejects SC proposal to form commission on Panama

Imran Khan

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has rejected the Supreme Court’s proposal to set up probe commission to investigate the Panamagate.
Addressing to a press conference PTI wanted inquiry through apex court and did not support commission at any point. The PTI chairman said the existing top court bench led by the Chief Justice can decide the case on a day-to-day basis.
Imran inquired how the commission would yield results when all state institutions were working under the premier. The PM will not resign as a result of the commission’s findings, he added.
Imran mentioned that all ministers were working to hide Sharif family’s corruption. “The premier terming his earlier address in the parliament a political speech meant that it was scripted and that he was lying to the nation,” he alleged.
Commenting the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) airplane crash, PTI chairman said the incident called for attention to improving the standards of the national flag carrier. “PIA’s safety record is not very encouraging, we need to conduct an inquiry of the incident and take steps to avoid such mishaps in future,” Imran maintained.
On Wednesday, the top court once again proposed formation of a commission for verification of documents submitted by the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to establish their claims.
However, the court clarified that if the major parties in the case did not favour the proposal, the same bench of the apex court would continue to adjudicate the case, adding that a direct judgment on available evidence might amaze both the parties. 02
