The Attorney General of Pakistan (AGP) and other parties in the case have also received notices from the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court is hearing the case now, five and a half years later. On November 23, 2017, the case’s last hearing was held.


The so-called Panama Papers, which reveal the global scope of the secret infrastructure and offshore tax havens used by the rich and powerful, were brought to light by an international collaboration of more than 300 reporters from six continents.

According to the Panama Papers investigation, more than 140 politicians from more than 50 countries, including 14 current or former world leaders, were linked to offshore corporations.

The documents also reveal the identities of hundreds of Pakistanis who have offshore firms in foreign tax havens, including the children of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

Requests for an investigation against the 436 Pakistanis involved in the Panama Leaks have been pending for some time, but in a related case, the leader of the Muslim League (N) and a popularly elected official, Nawaz Sharif, was disqualified for simply refusing to accept a fictitious salary. .

Members of the intelligence agencies in the case helped form the JIT, and the Supreme Court closely monitored every step of the procedure.
