Panama case: JIT accuses state institutions of tampering with record
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The joint investigation team (JIT) has accused the state institutions of tampering with record and impersonation.
The special three-member bench of the Supreme Court reviewed the issues of Hussain Nawaz’s photo leak and problems being faced by the JIT.
In his remarks, Justice Ijazul Hassan said that the allegations of tampering with record and impersonation by state institutions are heinous. “Some institutions write letters to the Supreme Court after recording their statements in the JIT,” he remarked.
Highlighting the issue of photo leak, Hussain Nawaz’s counsel contended that the law does not allow video recording.
The court again rejected the objection and stated that video recording cannot be presented as proof. “There is no ban on video recording. The objective is to write a transcript,” he said.
Justice Ijazul Hassan said that how investigations will be completed in the stipulated period if the JIT faces problems. “The government officers release to the media the letter written to the Supreme Court,” he said.
The court ordered Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf to submit a reply on the photo leak and problems being faced by the JIT on June 14.
