PML-N approaches Supreme Court against Imran Khan pressurising JIT



Pakistan Muslim League PML-N seems perturbed over the issue of the Joint Investigation Team formation by the Supreme Court of Pakistan and the subsequent bombardment by the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan on media.

Barrister Danyal Chaudhry – the son of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senator Chaudhry Tanvir – has approached the top court, requesting it to refrain Imran Khan from influencing a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing offshore businesses of the Sharif family.

Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and PEMRA (Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority) have been named as respondents in the petition.

The petitioner, under Article-184 (3) of the constitution, asked the Supreme Court (SC) that a special oath be solemnised to the JIT members that they would complete their task of settling the infamous Panamagate scandal independently without being influenced by Imran Khan’s speeches and other material of similar nature broadcasted on this behalf.

The top court, on Friday, formed a six-member JIT to probe Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his sons in line with its April 20 verdict.
