Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif talks to the media after appearing before JIT

But the court did not give him a clean chit either and instead ordered a Joint Investigative Team (JIT) to probe Sharif and his children's money trail. However, the issue of impartial accountability becomes problematic when more than 400 other citizens whose names also appeared in the Panama Papers are let off the hook.

Her feisty social media persona and combative tweets in defense of her father have often pitted her against Sharif's rivals. They believed that PM Nawaz Sharif, being in the saddle, would be able to influence members of the JIT; but when the Supreme Court inducted the competent and honest members from the agencies and regulators, PML-N leaders started raising objections against the JIT. People in Pakistan can now thank Calibri and get a free ride. "It does kill any aspirations for the dynasty - through her at any rate".

The group, sources said, insist that the Sharif family's legal team submit "strong" objections against the JIT report in the apex court. Sharif himself has decried it as a targeted witch hunt and vowed to fight it out in the court.

The assets of Prime Minister's family were revealed in the findings published by the Panama Papers in April past year.

14 de julio de 2017, 11:09New Delhi, Jul 14 (Prensa Latina) Although he refuses to leave his post, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is against the ropes today due to a corruption scandal that involves him and that it is used by the opposition to demand that he be replaced at the helm of the country.

Dynastic politics have a long tradition in Pakistan. Naeem Bukhari also asked the court to summon the prime minister for cross-questioning.

Chaudhry said the decision to wait has been made by the party, adding that the party will not organise big rallies or public meetings till the court announces its decision, but will hold small party conventions at various places.

We are still waiting for complete details of Sharif family's assets, said Justice Ijaz.

If America has Ivanka Trump its on-off-on partner Pakistan has Maryam Nawaz Sharif. JIT included two more questions on its own, he claimed.

According to Zahid Hussain of Dawn, Sharif's fate has hung in the balance since the ruling of the five-member bench in May this year. "He (Sharif) would not only be disqualified but also go to jail", he said.

"Those are very liberal things the prime minister said and I think Maryam had influence on that", said Miftah Ismail, a special assistant to the prime minister.

Similarly, Nawaz Sharif wants peace in Afghanistan and is not interested in a policy of strategic depth; and a compliant government in Kabul. All democratic forces would play their role in protecting the democratic system in the country, he added.

Sharif in April narrowly escaped disqualification after the Supreme Court ruled there was insufficient evidence to remove him - by a 2-3 split - over documents released by the Panama Papers leak into off-shore wealth.

Pakistan, which faces elections in a year, has plunged into yet another political crisis, giving the all-powerful army the upper hand.

"(Benazir) earned her stripes the hard, painful way through jails and exiles and torture. The report highlighted the failure of the Sharif family to provide a money trail for its London apartments. Sharif, whose last government was toppled in 1999 by a military coup, is no stranger to this.
