JIT findings reveal Sharif received salary from FZE Company: SC
ISLAMABAD: Resuming his arguments before fivemember bench of the Supreme Court on Thursday, ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s counsel Khawaja Harris said that Article 62(1)(f) of the constitution could not be applied to anyone merely concealing assets.
The court was hearing a set of review appeals filed by Sharif family members when Khawaja Haris said that he had been unable to know any precedents inwhich the court had disqualified a public representative under Article 62 for concealing assets.
Cautioning long-lasting adverse outcomes of lifetime disqualification term, the counsel claimed that the constitution does not specify such kind of disqualification under Article 62.
“My client has been disqualified for life-time on not disclosing his work permit and salary from an offshore company, [however] nullifying general elections could only dismiss him for a single election term [five year term],” he further said.
