Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan is part of the three-member special bench—alongside Justice Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan—tasked with ensuring the implementation of the Supreme Court verdict and monitor the working of the joint investigation team.

During proceedings Justice Ejaz Afzal irked over statements by politicians, saying a political party leader lied and misled people by giving the impression that all five judges had called the prime minister a liar in the verdict.

He said, “We did not call anyone a liar”. .

However, Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan said directives for the formation of the Joint Investigation Team on the Panama Papers case would be issued today.
