Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, who heads the bench, expressed anger on being told once again that various departments of the government are continuing to refuse cooperation with the JIT.

The report was submitted by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to the three-member special bench implementing the court's 20 April verdict on the Panama papers case.

The other two members — Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Justice Azmat Saeed — also warned Securities and Exchange Commission (SECP) and the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to provide all relevant record to the JIT.

"No good will come out of this for the departments if they delay the process by dragging their legs," Justice Ahsan warned.

The bench also asked the attorney general to ensure cooperation from all departments and asked the JIT to complete the probe and submit the final report on July 10.

The JIT was set up early last month to carry out investigations within 60 days about the alleged money laundering by Sharif family to purchase properties in London.

The issue of properties surfaced when Panama leaks showed that Sharif's children were managing these properties through offshore companies.

Sharif narrowly survived in three-two judgement in his favour in allegations of corruption in the Panama Papers case.
