PTI opens another Pandora Box against PM Nawaz Sharif


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf PTI has opened another Pandora box against Prime Minister of Pakistan Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.

The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf has asked the Federal Investigation Agency to provide details of the actions it has so far taken in line with the Supreme Court’s decision in the famous Asghar Khan case in which the FIA had been directed to hold investigations against all those politicians, including Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who had received money from army generals during the 1990 elections in an effort to defeat the Pakistan Peoples Party.

The details have been sought by PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhry through a letter to FIA Director General Mohammad Amlish. 

The PTI has written the letter at a time when the whole nation is waiting for the Supreme Court’s judgement in the Panama Papers scam.

Through the letter written on Wednesday and copies of which were released to the media, the PTI spokesman had asked the FIA head to respond to 12 questions and threatened that the party might take the agency to the Supreme Court for allegedly committing contempt of court by not acting on the court’s order issued by a three-judge bench headed by then chief justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry in October 2012.

The PTI leader has specifically asked the FIA DG to tell about the progress they had made in holding “criminal investigations” against PM Sharif.
