JIT is associated with different political parties: Hanif Abbasi

ISLAMABAD (APP): The association of the Panama case Joint Investigation Team members with different political parties has come to the fore, alleged Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi on Tuesday.

“How would [otherwise] Imran Khan and Sheikh Rasheed come to know what statements Shehbaz Sharif and others recorded before the JIT,” Abbasi questioned while he and other leaders of the ruling party spoke to the media, opposing the investigation team’s findings. “Our reservations regarding the JIT have proven right.”

He added the cases with documents from the JIT report had nothing but assumptions.

Another leader of PML-N, Daniyal Aziz, also spoke to the media, saying the JIT investigation was not completed within the stipulated time period, something which the team has admitted to.

While speaking about volume 10 of the report — which the JIT head does not want to be made public for the sake of further investigation — Aziz believed what they thought of the volume has come to be true.

However, he added, they would examine the entire report before the Supreme Court.

Also speaking to the media, PML-N’s Talal Chaudhry said the 256-page report of JIT has 256 errors.
