Islamabad [Pakistan], Feb. 16 (ANI): A day after the Pakistan Supreme Court asked for 'actual documents' that establish Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's eldest son Hussain Nawaz's ownership of the London flats, the latter's counsel Salman Akram Raja submitted new documents before it on Thursday. "Where is the actual document that shows that Hussain Nawaz [...] is the owner of the four London flats?" the five-member larger bench of the apex court had asked the day before, reports the Dawn. The bench had also asked Salman Akram Raja, to "show the court the relevant documents that reveal who paid Minerva Financial Services," the holding company for two off-shore entities that own the four flats located in London's upscale Park Lane neighbourhood in question. In Thursday's hearing, Raja submitted documents purporting to show the services rendered by Minerva Services to the two companies, Nielsen Enterprises Ltd and Nescoll Ltd. Documents purporting to show the ownership of the Park Lane flats in London were also submitted before the five-member bench. The documents appear to show the ownership of the flats in question since the year 2006, and state that the payment for the flats was made to Minerva Services by Arrina Company through Barclays Bank. The payments were made to Minerva Services in 2014, the documents state. After submitting the documents, Raja told the court that Maryam Nawaz, Prime Minister Sharif's daughter, had remained a trustee of the Minerva Financial Services Ltd between February and July 2006.
