Supreme Court has adjourned hearing of review petitions against its decision in Panama Papers Case till Friday.

A five member larger bench of the court headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa heard the petitions in Islamabad on Thursday.

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's counsel Khawaja Haris continued his arguments before the court today.

He said for non disclosure of assets a candidate's election can be declared void but he cannot be disqualified forever.

He challenged the very definition of assets for disqualifying former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. 

Khawaja Haris said an unwithdrawn salary does not constitute an offence under the provision of Representation of Peoples Act invoked to disqualify the former Prime Minister.

He added that chairmanship of Capital FZE by Nawaz Sharif was just ceremonial.
