ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has voiced its concern over the delay in the Supreme Court’s (SC) verdict in the Panamagate case, saying it was creating uncertainty among the general public.
“Delay in the announcement of the judgment is giving rise to uncertainty among Pakistanis,” PTI spokesperson Fawad Hussain said in a statement on Friday. “If this situation persists, it could lead people to an unpalatable disappointment.”

This is the first time the PTI has shared its reservations publicly over what it believes is a lingering delay in the announcement of the crucial verdict by the apex court.
Hussain said the nation is on tenterhooks waiting for the court’s decision.
Almost one month ago, on February 23, the SC reserved its verdict in the case after a five-judge bench heard the case on day-to-day basis.
The apex court heard the case for almost over three-and-a-half-months and on February 23 it reserved its verdict in the case.

Now the nation wants to hear this historic decision which will have a far-reaching impact on the future of Pakistan, he added.
