SC seeks clarification from JIT on leakage of Hussain Nawaz's photo
The Supreme Court today asked the Panama Papers case Joint Investigation Team to clarify its position on leakage of Hussain Nawaz's photo of his appearance before it.
A three-member special implementation bench of the apex court headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan heard Panama implementation case.
During the course of proceedings, Hussain Nawaz's counsel Khawaja Haris Ahmad pleaded the court to constitute an independent commission headed by a retired or sitting judge of the apex court to inquire into the circumstances leading to the leaking of his client's photograph on social media.
He also pleaded the court to direct JIT members to immediately stop the video recording of its proceedings relating to recording of statement and interrogation of witnesses.
The court asked the JIT to file its response to Hussain Nawaz's plea and adjourned hearing for Monday.
Head of the JIT Wajid Zia submitted its second report.
