Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders have said on Monday that Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report over Panama papers is not the verdict of Supreme Court.
While talking to media after the resuming of Panama case hearing, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said that the requests made in the report do not implement on Supreme Court.
“SC will give verdict according to law and constitution and PM Nawaz will be succesful. We have requested to make volume 10 of the report public which has also been concealed from the SC,” asserted Aurangzeb.
She reiterated that all the documents presented by Sharif family are verified and questioned that who will confirm the non-verified ones as they are not fit for hearing in SC.
“JIT is not eligible to accuse the government of corruption in tax payers’ money. Its report is false and incorrect. No one can demand PM’s resignation on the basis of non-verified documents,” she said.
She accused Imran Khan of locking down the accountability commission in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa while asking it from others.
Daniyal Aziz in his media talk also blamed the JIT for overlooking significant facts in the report and said that it is not the final verdict.
While commenting on the Calibri font, Aziz argued that it was available since 2004. He said that the lawyer ignored the ‘most likely’ point in the statements and moved ahead without reading the whole line.
A three-member SC bench comprising Justice Ejaz Afzal, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijazul Hassan resumed hearing of the final phase of Panamagate case on Monday during which an argument over Qatari prince’s letter was taken place between SC judges and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawyer Naeem Bokhari.
The hearing was adjourned till the next day as Justice Ijaz-ul-Hassan remarked that they are not bound to accept JIT findings.
