N leadership rejects JIT report as 'garbage'

N leadership rejects JIT report as 'garbage'

"Significant gap/disparity among the known and declared sources of income and the wealth accumulated by the Respondent No. 1, 6, 7 and 8 have been observed", said the investigation team in its closing remarks, reports the News.

In a meeting after the submission of final report regarding Panamagate probe in Supreme Court, top PML-N leadership has advised Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif not to resign, sources told ARY News on Monday.

The top court took up the case in October past year on petitions filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Awami Muslim League and Jamaat-e-Islami and reserved the verdict in February after conducting hearings on a daily basis.

Although Mr. Sharif had won a 3-2 split verdict in April this year, the apex court constituted a JIT to conduct fresh investigations into his family assets. A team submitted its report in the Supreme Court after 60 days of investigation.

"The way in which JIT was run and the way in which revenge tactics were used through JIT, this report has proved all our reservations and it won't be wrong if you call this report 'Imran Nama", as this report is the combination of a political party "s accusations whose so-called evidence was even called worthless trash", said Ahsan Iqbal. He is the sole defense witness in the money laundering case against the Sharif family.

There was no confirmation of the report as the court adjourned the hearing till next Monday.

The JIT also summoned National Bank of Pakistan CEO Saeed Ahmed, and some officials from the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), among others.

Members of his family - and last month Sharif, personally - have appeared before a Supreme Court-appointed team investigating the family's offshore companies. Several assets have raised eyebrows which include four flats that cost million pounds in Park Lane, London, United Kingdom.

The report suggested the National Accountability Bureau, the country's main anti-corruption watchdog, should open a "reference" or case against Sharif and his three children under the provisions of the National Accountability Bureau Ordinance of 1999.

Capt (r) Muhammad Safdar Awan, the premier's son-in-law, has also been included in the names forwarded to NAB.
