ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Spokesman to Prime Minister Dr Musadiq Malik has on Thursday again raised doubts and reservations on the Joint Investigation Team (JIT).

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Thursday, he raised doubts and reservations saying that during its investigation the JIT forced persons to become witnesses against the Sharif family.

The spokesman said that it seemed that the JIT members had a pre-determined plan in their mind and their conduct smacked of conspiracy, adding that it seemed either JIT was trying to get extension of another 60 days or create conditions for an undemocratic dispensation.

Musadiq Malik said: “The JIT did not bother to visit abroad to verify the authenticity of the documents given to it. He said Sharif family submitted in Supreme Court that in late 1970s, it bought Gulf Steel Mills and later with its sale proceeds invested with the Qatari Royal family.”

He went on to say that the JIT members should have visited Qatar to verify account of the Sharif family. “Qatari prince in his letters confirmed that the events narrated by the Sharif family were correct and he had invited the JIT,” he added.


He said: “The PML-N distributed sweets so that it could get justice after the Supreme Court decision, adding that it did not distribute sweets for taping of phones of Prime Minister House and intimidation of persons appearing before JIT.”
