Two ex-judges decline to head PM’s inquiry commission

Islamabad: Two former members of the superior judiciary have refused to head Prime Minister’s inquiry commission regarding Panama Leaks.

According to details, government is still unable to notify the high-level judicial inquiry commission announced by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

PM announced the probe in the wake of the Panama Papers leaks as Nawaz’s 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.

Two former Supreme Court judges Justice (retd) Nasirul Mulk and Justice (retd) Sair Ali have shown unwillingness to lead the high-level inquiry commission.

According to reports, 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.
