Islamabad [Pakistan], Nov. 20 (ANI): The new counsel to replace Hamid Khan in the Panamagate case against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his children will be announced by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan after he returns from London on November 22.

Earlier on Friday, senior counsel Hamid Khan distanced himself from representing the PTI for litigation of the Panama Papers case in the Supreme Court and said that the media campaign against him has made it impossible to continue representing the Imran Khan-led party in the apex court, reports the Dawn.

Meanwhile, some reports state that the PTI has decided to change the lawyer after the apex court on Tuesday questioned the quality of the evidence presented by the party and deplored that their 680-page submission had almost nothing to do with the Sharif family's London properties. (ANI)
