ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Monday ordered a special court to not issue any orders in an ongoing Rs35 billion money laundering case without informing it beforehand.

A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar is hearing a case pertaining to money laundering of Rs35 billion from fictitious bank accounts.

The top court also stopped the special court from unfreezing Omni Group’s bank accounts.

The Supreme Court issued the directives to the special court under Article 184.

During the hearing, a joint investigation team (JIT) formed to probe into the case submitted its first progress report before the bench in a sealed envelope.
