ISLAMABAD (May 05, 2017): Irked by misrepresentation of the Supreme Court’s ruling by political leaders, Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan in his remarks on Friday said he had not called Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif a liar in the decision of the Panama Papers case.

Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan is part of the three-member special bench—alongside Justice Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan—tasked with ensuring the implementation of the Supreme Court verdict and monitoring the working of the joint investigation team.

During proceedings regarding the JIT’s formation today, Justice Ejaz Afzal expressed displeasure over statements by politicians, saying a political party leader lied and misled people by giving the impression that all five judges had called the prime minister a liar in the verdict.

“He warned that if judges are misquoted again, the person concerned would be brought in court.
