ISLAMABAD – The Supreme Court on Friday set the date to hear a review petition filed by incarcerated Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz’s (PML-N) Hanif Abbasi seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Imran Khan over non-disclosure of assets and ownership of offshore companies.

A three-member special bench of the SC headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar will hear the case on October 18 (Thursday).

The court had ruled earlier that Khan was not liable to declare offshore company Niazi Services Ltd in his 2013 nomination papers as he was not a shareholder or director of the company.

The court also said that PM Khan provided sufficient money trail vindicating his claims of Bani Gala property’s purchase price.

Abbasi had filed the petition in November last year.
