Money laundering case against PM referred to CJ

LAHORE: A Lahore High Court division bench on Monday referred to the chief justice a petition against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif carrying money laundering charges, with a request to constitute a five-member full bench to hear the 24-year-old case.
Barrister Javed Iqbal Jafree had filed the petition in 1991 submitting that Nawaz shifted billions of rupees abroad.
He alleged that Mr Sharif misused his powers and made a number of appointments in violation of the merit.
He said the prime minister did not meet the criteria of being a member of parliament prescribed in Articles 62 & 63 of the Constitution.
In 2010, a bench headed by then chief justice Ijaz Chaudhry had heard the case and decided that a bench of not less than five judges should hear the matter.
Earlier, another division bench had also referred the petition to the chief justice for the formation of a full bench.
