The Pakistan Army has pledged to play its due role in the Joint Investigation Team for the Panama Leaks probe in a legal and transparent manner, and to fulfill the confidence reposed in the institution by the Supreme Court.

The Panama case decision, announced by the Supreme Court last week, and the JIT ordered by the apex court were discussed by the Army's top commanders during the 202nd Corp Commander's conference held at the General Headquarters here on Monday.

In a statement released by the DG ISPR Maj-General Asif Ghafoor, the forum pledged that the "institution through its members in JIT shall play its due role in a legal and transparent manner fulfilling confidence reposed by the Apex Court of Pakistan".

In its verdict last week, the Supreme Court had ordered the formation of a six-member JIT to probe corruption allegations against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the Panama Leaks case.

The top court had also ordered the inclusion of one member each from the Military Intelligence and the Inter-Services Intelligence in the six-member team.
