Pak cannot afford conflict among institutions: Saad2017/09/16
ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Railways and the senior member of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Khawaja Saad Rafique on Friday stated that Pakistan cannot afford conflict among institutions.
Speaking to media in Islamabad, the minister said it is obligatory for everyone to respect judiciary as well as the parliament. He said the PML-N had reservations over formation and working process of the Panama joint investigation team (JIT).
"We expected this outcome, yet we approached the Supreme Court to have our reservations redressed and the record set straight through the review petitions," the railway minister said. He further stressed that practice of no-confidence on institutions over few decisions should be avoided. It will only spread anarchy, he added. 
Rafique said the Sharif family had for the umpteenth times expressed their reservations over the constitution of a joint investigation team by the court to investigate the Panama Papers and the way it carried out the investigation.
In a veiled criticism of the Supreme Court judges for their reference to Mario Puzo's Godfather in the Panama Papers verdict and Sicilian mafia during the hearing of Panama Papers case, he said: "Our leadership is neither godfather nor mafia."
The railway minister said despite conspiracies being hatched against Nawaz Sharif, his popularity has increased in public. He said the parliament should also be given the same respect as the judiciary, adding that Pakistan could not afford any confrontation between state institutions.
Dispelling the impression of any rifts within the party, Rafique said his party was united under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif.
On the other hand, PML-N leader Anusha Rehman expressed disappointment over dismissal of review petitions by the Supreme Court. She said the verdict does not contain any order regarding protection of fundamental rights.
Earlier today, Supreme Court dismissed an appeal from former prime minister Nawaz Sharif against his disqualification in the Panama Papers case.
The case against the prime minister stemmed from the Panama Papers leak last year, which spurred media frenzy over the extravagant lifestyles and high-end London property portfolio of the Sharif dynasty.
"All these review petitions are dismissed," said Supreme Court justice Asif Saeed Khosa who oversaw the five-member review panel.
In a long-winded appeal demanding that his case be reviewed, Sharif's legal team presented 19 points challenging the court's judgement, saying the ruling suffered "from errors floating on the surface".
The Supreme Court has also ordered the country's anti-corruption watchdog, the National Accountability Bureau, to open a criminal case against Sharif, his sons - Hussain and Hassan - and his daughter Maryam. - NNI

His statement came as the SC dismissed all review petitions filed by ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his children and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar against the Panama Papers judgment.
The court maintained the decision of disqualifying former prime minister Nawaz Sharif for violating Article 62(1)(f) of the constitution.

While terming Hudaibiya Paper Mills "Mother of all Crimes", Rashid pronounced, "Trial will be held of these cases especially the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case. I am hopeful that Nawaz Sharif will appear before the court on September 19 over the reference filed against him."
Earlier, Sheikh Rashid said that if NAB files a reference against the Sharif family today with honesty then it will be second victory for them after the Panama Papers case. The AML chief went on to say that maybe he will visit Qatar to obtain the real documents of LNG case which will be their third victory. - NNI
