What allegations Hussain Nawaz has levelled against JIT members

Hussain Nawaz has raised objections against two members of the Supreme Court-appointed Joint Investigation Team (JIT).

Regarding the JIT member from the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), Amir Aziz, Hussain says he was part of the investigation team in the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case during the regime of former president Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf. 

Hussain has claimed that the JIT member from the Security and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP), Bilal Rasool, is the nephew of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Mian Azhar. He added that despite being a public servant, Bilal frequently speaks against the ruling federal government, while his wife is also a PTI supporter.

Aziz also threatened the premier’s cousin, Tariq Shafi, while investigating him in the Panama case, Hussain has alleged. Aziz also allegedly directed Shafi to take back his sworn statement, according to Hussain’s petition.

Hussain has claimed that these incidents have exposed the impartiality of the two JIT members, and pleaded with the apex court to order an objective and unbiased inquiry.
