tariq-fazal-1024ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) Dr Tariq Fazal Chaudhry Thursday said that the Supreme Court in its verdict on the Panama Papers had rejected the evidences submitted by the Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI).

The PTI had been claiming of submitting substantial evidences before the SC, but those were not considered by the court, he said while talking to a private news channel.

The minster said the apex court's order for forming a joint investigation team (JIT) vindicated the stance of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on the Panama Papers allegations.

He said the prime minister had written a letter to the Supreme Court to constitute a commission for investigation into the Panama Papers and the same had now been instructed by the court.

Tariq Fazal said the prime minister had presented himself and his family for investigation and would do the same before the JIT.

He said all others who were named in the Panama Papers for owning off-shore companies should also be held accountable.
