Dawn Online reported that Khan, the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) submitted the documents containing illegal hundi/ hawala business details and alleged bank accounts held by the Sharif family along with loan write-off schemes.

During this period of money laundering, the documents claim, “Sharif paid only Rs 897 in income tax”. The documents were submitted by Khan through Advocate Naeem Bokhari. The papers also contain excerpts from a book by journalist Asad Kharal, in which he made several revelations regarding Sharif family including sending an amount of over Rs 56 million out of the country between 1988 and 1991. The alleged transfer of funds and purchases of assets overseas was disclosed by Khalid Siraj, “first cousin and business partner” of Sharif.

The Supreme Court is currently hearing five identical petitions against Sharif and will resume hearing the Panama case today.
