N leadership rejects JIT report as 'garbage'

Twitter a buzz after JIT alleges Maryam Nawaz forged documents with Calibri font

A corruption case in the Panama Papers case should be filed against Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif and his two sons Hussain and Hassan, suggests JIT ( Joint Investigation Team) that is looking into the assets of one of the most powerful family in Pakistan.

The report, however, was slammed by the Nawaz Sharif government as "trash" with Sharif's close aide and minister for development Ahsan Iqbal in press conference with other ministers, saying they will challenge the report in the Supreme Court and will "completely expose and unveil its contradictions and falsifications".

"This report is a political statement which reads like an Imran-nama", the minister said. The six-member team of JIT has apparently submitted its magnified report to the Supreme Court of Pakistan after a 60-day meticulous investigation. Sources said there were differences over the issue of jurisdiction; the JIT wanted him to testify him inside the territorial jurisdiction of Pakistan and offered to host him in Pakistan or record his statement at the Pakistani embassy at Doha.

The "forced confession" of Finance Minister Ishaq Dar is also being used to establish a case against the Sharif family.The JIT summoned nearly all important persons named in both the Rehman Malik report and Mr Dar's "confession".A British-Pakistani Kashif Mehmood Qazi, was also summoned.

According to local media, the JIT has observed major disparities in the finances of the Sharif family and their known and declared sources of income and has recommended action under NAB Ordinance 1999.

Meanwhile, Fawad Chaudhry, a spokesman for opposition leader Imran Khan's Pakistan Taherik-e-Insaf, claimed on Monday that the days of Sharif's government were numbered and that the Supreme Court, based on the findings next week, is expected to announce some sort of decision.

After receiving the JIT's report, a three-judge bench the court ordered the opening of a criminal case against Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan chairman Zafar Hijazi, who had been accused by a federal investigation agency of tampering records to favour Sharif's family. He is the sole defense witness in the money laundering case against the Sharif family. They appeared once before the JIT.

"There is no need of further trial or proceedings".
