Panama Papers leaks: Two ex-judges decline to head PMs inquiry commission


ISLAMABAD: The government is still unable to notify the high-level judicial inquiry commission announced by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the wake of the Panama Papers leaks as two former members of the superior judiciary have refused to take up the task.

Nawazs two sons and a daughter have been named in the documents leaked from the Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca for owning offshore businesses. While denying any wrongdoing, the PM has announced a judicial probe into the allegations against his family.

PM Nawaz forms judicial commission to probe Panama Papers

A senior official told The Express Tribune two former Supreme Court judges Justice (retd) Nasirul Mulk and Justice (retd) Sair Ali have shown unwillingness to lead the high-level inquiry commission.Now the government officials are also contacting other

retired judges but no one has given a positive response to take up this task till now, he said, while speaking on the condition of anonymity.
Sources said no credible retired judge will show willingness to be part of the probe in view of the opposition parties reservations over formation of the commission under retired judges.

While legal experts believe that it will be difficult for the incumbent superior judiciary to accept the governments request to give a judge for probing the Panama Papers, the government, according to an official, is also not interested to form the commission under a serving judge.

If a reasonable retired judge is not available then the government may consider the offer of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) president Ali Zafar to probe the Panama Papers leaks, he said, adding that a senior official had already consulted Zafar, seeking his point of view on the commission.
The SCBA president has also urged the judiciary to refrain from taking up the issue.

Imran Khan demands commission headed by CJP to probe Panama Papers revelations


Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, State Minister Zahid Hamid and Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Law Barrister Zafarullah are busy finalising the Terms of Reference (ToRs) of the proposed commission.
A senior lawyer associated with the ruling PML-N, however, expressed wonder over the prime ministers

announcement to form an inquiry commission, adding that the pronouncement was made in haste and now the ToRs should be made after overseeing all legal implications.

They don't want their reputations to be ruined.

They know, PMLN thugs will blackmail them or even threaten to kill them if they don't decide their way.

Judges are right. There is nothing in the case. I doubt anyone will actually appear before the commission with any hard evidence of wrongdoing. Whoever goes there, will make just noisy speeches without any substance. No commission or court can establish guilt on the basis of talk shows, hearsay and innuendo. For a clean report, members of the commission will face heckling, derision and badger for a long time, for nothing.

And the defense of the indefensible continues !

Judicial Commissions are a new art form manufactured by the Nooras to give them a clean chit. What happened in Model Town Commission when the one bench Justice Baqer report implicated the Nooras that was quashed and a new one formed to give verdict in their favour, then a toothless and meaning less one was formed over the election rigging case and the result was just as toothless as the commission itself. Rigging hui hai lekin nai hui hai ??!!??!!

Same can be expected for this pointless and futile exercise no matter who is on it. Only a neutral third party forensic audit can reveal the truth.

Innocent, until proven guilty!!!

How can a guilty verdict ever come from the Lohar courts and commissions, ever heard of the phrase conflict of interest, apparently not just like your masters. I am accused of a crime, so I myself set up a commission with people of my choosing to investigate me ? You either have to have the IQ of a park bench or a be a patwari to see that there is nothing wrong here.

Too bad if you feel helpless and destitute, but that is how law works. There is just no evidence of any wrongdoing. Nobody can be convicted without cause.

You are a moron I give you that. in every civilised country, in the matter of finance, income and income tax the reverse of a criminal act applies. onus is always on the plaintiff to show the income in proportion of their life styles. In the UK the HMRC give you notice to come up with the correct income, show the sources etc. If you fail, they would fix the income themselves, ask you to pay the income tax on their assessment, interest due and any penalty charge as a result of the delay.
I think you should wake up from you dream silly boy.

No, the presumption of innocence still applies. There is no charge against Sharifs. It is just innuendo. They have legit businesses in Pakistan as well as UK. Forget about their defense, go frame a charge first.

How have you concluded that there is no evidence of wrong doing without any investigation.I am pretty sure Sharifs will be found guilty of money laundering,tax evasion and many other corruption cases. Sharifs have been involved in corruption from 1980s on wards.If Sharifs are innocent then they should agree to a commission formed of supreme court judges, an international forensic investigation team .TPakistan government can ask UK for help.The UK national crime agency (NCA) has a lot of experts who can assist .The retired judges of Pakistan have no clue how to investigate financial corruption.

Baravo, you have framed the charge, I suppose you have the proof. Everybody says the same thing as you did. Now go prove it.
