ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Parliamentary Secretary for Information and Broadcasting Mohsin Shahnawaz Ranjha on Tuesday said the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) had exceeded its mandate and the Sharif family lawyers would decimate it before the Supreme Court.
“Our lawyers have filed objections with the court and we shall expose the real face of JIT,” Ranjha said while talking to media at the Supreme Court in Islamabad.
Ranjha said the JIT had touched issues other than mandated to it by the Supreme Court and contacted such firms for verification that had no legal standing.
“Wajid Zia assigned this task to his cousin’s company, benefitting him with hundreds of thousands pounds from national exchequer,” he said.
The Parliamentary Secretary further alleged that Wajid Zia is part of the conspiracy to de-seat Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and for the purpose he engaged his cousin to get fake documents.
Mohsin Shahnawaz Ranjha questioned how could the JIT include those cases of the past in its investigation that had already been disposed off by the courts.
“This report is biased and we shall postmortem it in the court,” the Parliamentary Secretary said.
Meanwhile, the prime minister’s Counsel Khawaja Haris submitted his arguments today before the three-member bench of the Supreme Court headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan formed for the implementation of order in Panama Papers Case.
