Ex-PM Qatar reveals truth about business
ISLAMABAD: One of the world’s wealthiest men and former Qatar Prime Minister, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani, who was accused of kickbacks over a UK defence deal in 2000, has come to rescue of Sharif Family in Panamagate investigation.
In the hearing today, the Sharif family presented letter of Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani in the court regarding his business relations with PM Nawaz Sharif’s family.
Sheikh Hamad said his father had longstanding business relations with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s father Mian Muhammad Sharif, and that their families also enjoyed personal relations.
He said Mian Sharif invested in his Al Thani family business in Qatar 12 million Dirhams, originated from the sale of business in Dubai and UAE.
As the Supreme Court started hearing of the Panamagate case on Tuesday, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz submitted documentary evidence in support of their statements regarding their family assets.
While Maryam Nawaz submitted the evidence required by the court, her brothers Hassan and Hussain Nawaz, both of whom live abroad, failed to submit relevant documents.
The documents comprising nearly 400 pages contain relevant details of transactions as well as receipts of payments since 2011.
However, the five-member larger bench chaired by Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali expressed its disappointment over failure of the premier’s sons to comply with court orders to submit evidence within stipulated time.
The bench observed that there are discrepancies between PM’s documents and his public statement regarding his Jeddah steel mill, Gulf Steel Mill and London flats; however, Akram Chadhry contended that not even a single penny was shifted abroad from the country.
