PM directs legal team to prepare reply to JIT report
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday directed the legal and constitutional experts to prepare a reply to the JIT report submitted to the Supreme Court.
The prime minister directed this while chairing a party’s special consultative session held following submission of JIT report to the Supreme Court.
The meeting decided to reject the JIT report, sources said.
The participants of the meeting advised the prime minister not to tender resignation from his office. The premier should wait for the apex court’s decision on the JT report, they added.
The JIT report carries several flaws, the meeting said.
During the meeting, legal experts briefed the prime minister on the Supreme Court hearing, in which the Panama case Joint Investigation Team (JIT) submitted its final probe report into the Sharif family’s money trail.
Federal ministers, advisers and senior members of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz attended the meeting.
Earlier, the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) tasked by the Supreme Court to probe the offshore properties of Sharif Family submitted its final report before the three-member Special Bench of the apex court on Monday.
The Joint Investigation Team (JI) has asked the Supreme Court of Pakistan to file a reference against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Hussain Nawaz and Hasan Nawaz.
According to Geo News, the JIT has found disparities between the wealth and known source of income of the respondents.
