ISLAMABAD: 

The Supreme Court of Pakistan held the hearing of the Panama case JIT report on Monday.

The Supreme Court (SC) has raised serious questions over the conduct of Intelligence Bureau (IB) in the ongoing Panamagate case probe by a joint investigation team (JIT) into the Sharif family’s offshore wealth.

A three-judge implementation bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, warned the civilian intelligence agency against harassing the JIT members, investigating the allegations of corruption against the ruling family in line with the top court’s historic April 20 verdict in the Panama Papers case.

“Harassment of JIT members must be stopped forthwith, otherwise we will have to pass unpleasant orders,” remarked Justice Ijazul Ahsen. The judge asked Attorney General of Pakistan (AGP) Ashtar Ausaf Ali to tell government officials to “remain in limits”.
