The Supreme Court of Pakistan disqualified Nawaz Sharif in the Panama Papers case on July 28, 2017. The Supreme Court banned his son from any public office for life for concealing his unpaid wages in the Panama case.
A year later, in announcing its ruling on the petition challenging the 2017 Elections Act, the court said that those disqualified under Sections 62 and 63 cannot be party leaders, Pakistani news channel Geo News reported.
Pakistan’s home minister, Rana Sanaullah, said in an interview that because the top judge of the Supreme Court is considered “biased against the ruling party”, Geo News reported.
Sanaullah said Nawaz Sharif’s return to Pakistan depends on his health and election results. He further stated that according to news reports, general elections in Pakistan will be held in October.
The Supreme Court Review of Judgments and Orders Bill 2023 was implemented on Friday after approval by Pakistani President Arif Alvi. The law states that a judge greater than the one who issued the order will hear the case to review the suo motu judgment.
The law stipulates that “the review of facts and law shall be conducted to the same extent as in appeals under Article 185 of the Constitution for judgments and orders of the Supreme Court exercising original jurisdiction under Article 184 of the Constitution,” Geo News reported.
Pakistan’s Law Minister Azam Nazeer Tarar said Jahangir Khan Tareen, an estranged former prime minister and leader of the Pakistan Justice Instigation (PTI), would not benefit from new laws on sentence review.
Speaking to Geo News, Taral said the Supreme Court Review of Judgments and Orders Bill 2023 would not favor Nawaz Sharif and Nazeer Tareen as they both exercised their right to review judgments.
Azam Nazeer Tarar said the court’s judgment was final under Section 184(3), noting that “our laws do not leave room for amendment or remedial review”. He said ordinary people would receive relief under section 184(3) of the new law. (Arnie)
