‘N’ not to accept JIT report sans authentication of Qatri prince’s evidence: ministers
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Just two days ahead of Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to submit its final report in the Supreme Court, the federal ministers have on Saturday expressed reservations on the conduct of the six-man panel formed to probe Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family in Panama Leaks case.
A meeting of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in which it was decided to react strongly to the opposition and especially to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
Addressing a joint news conference in Islamabad on Saturday, Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is not fleeing from accountability if it is conducted on the basis of solid evidences.
He said that the prime minister could have sought immunity but he didn’t.
On the occasion, Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafiq said that the PML-N has reservations on the composition of the JIT as two members of the probe body have anti-PML-N designs.
Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal said that gone are the days when backdoor was used to come to power.
Meanwhile, Minister for Water and Power Khawaja Asif on Saturday said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) would not accept the report of joint investigation team (JIT) in the Panama Papers case if the Qatari prince’s letter was not made part of investigation.
“The JIT needed to get authenticated the letter of the former Qatri prime minister and make it part of the evidence before submitting its final report before the apex court,” Asif said.
