ISLAMABAD: The Panama case Joint Investigation Team report Volume 10 has been kept secret on the request of the Panama JIT, which has given an opportunity to the ruling family to criticise the JIT report.
The findings of the Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) relating to the probe against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members by invoking the Mutual Legal Assistance (MLA) in at least four foreign countries are so far incomplete.
This aspect of the investigation is going on and this is what has been inscribed in Volume-X: MLA “requests-ongoing (confidential)”.
Apparently for this reason, the JIT requested that this volume should be kept secret. The special bench accepted it.
The JIT report noted that four foreign countries that were approached by the team with the MLA requests are yet to respond while another two had given their replies.
The British Virgin Island (BVI) and Ministry of Justice, United Arab Emirates (UAE), attended to the MLA requests while the Saudi Ministry of Interior, British Home Office, UK Central Authority, Central Authority, Switzerland, and Prosecutor General, Luxemburg, have not so far responded.
