On October 20, 2016, the Supreme Court took up petitions by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Jamaat-e-Islami, Jamhoori Watan Party and others for hearing in an open court.

On November 3, the apex court declared the petitions maintainable and announced a single-member commission to probe into he Panama Leaks.
As a consequence, the proceedings started in the Supreme Court and PTI presented their arguments before the three-member bench comprising Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali, Justice Ijazul Hassan and Justice Khilji Arif Hussain.
On November 15, the ruling Sharif family submitted a letter by Qatari prince Jasim which suggested that the London flats were purchased through a joint investment done by Nawaz Sharif's father, the late Mian Shareef.
On December 9, the apex court adjourned the hearing till January due to the retirement of Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali.

On January 6, a new five-member bench headed by Asif Saeed Khosa and comprising Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, Justice Gulzar Ahmed, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ejaz ul Ahsan ordered Sharif family to submit the money trail for their offshore properties and businesses.
During the last week of January, Sharif family submitted the money trail including another Qatari letter, affidavit of Tariq Shafi, Dubai and Azizia factory sale receipt, Hudaibia paper mills audit report and other documents.
After scores of proceedings, the apex court completed its proceedings on February 23 and announced that they had reserved the judgment.
“We will decide this case only by the law, in such a way that 20 years down the line, people will be able to say that this judgment was made by the book,” Justice Khosa said.
The judgement remained reserved for an extended period and on April 18, the cause list issued by Supreme Court revealed that the historic judgment would be announced on Thursday April 20 at 2 PM after a gap of 57 days.
