Panama Case JIT report to be rejected by PML-N, ground prepared


ISLAMABAD: The ruling Pakistan Muslim League N is reportedly preparing ground for rejecting the report of the Panama Case Joint Investigation Team on account of non inclusion of the Qatari Prince statement in the record.

Prime Minister's Political Secretary Asif Kirmani said on Monday that the joint investigation team (JIT) report into the Sharif family's businesses cannot be completed without recording the statement of Qatari prince Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabar Al-Thani.

He was addressing the media after accompanying the prime minister's younger son, Hasan Nawaz, who reached the Federal Judicial Academy on Monday to appear before the JIT. 

A number of workers and local leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz were also present at the venue to 'receive' the premier's son.

Talking about the Qatari prince, whose letter came to the aid of the Sharif family during the Panama Papers case hearing by the Supreme Court earlier this year, Kirmani said the royal family member has repeatedly requested the JIT to record his statement but they have not done so.
