JIT urgesNAB to file reference against Nawaz Sharif, sons

The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) will submit its final report in the Panama Papers case before the Pakistan Supreme Court today.

He let it be known while addressing a press conference following the probe committee report in Supreme Court. They faced accountability many times, including during the Pervez Musharraf era, but nothing could be proved against them, he added.

The Federal Investigation Agency had informed the court over the weekend that its inquiry had found Hijazi guilty of tampering records of SECP's probe into the Chaudhry Sugar Mills, owned by the Sharif family.

The Panama JIT members arrived at the court amid tight security along with a box believed to be containing the investigation report and evidences collected by them during 60-day long investigation.

The JIT was working on the instructions of the Apex Court as it had directed the investigation team to look into the family belongings of Sharif.

The JIT has observed major disparities in the finances of the Sharif family and their known and declared sources of income.

The allegations focus on Sharif's previous two terms as prime minister in the 1990s, with opposition politician Imran Khan and others alleging that Sharif and his family illegally profited from his position.

I know I gave the medics a hard time because the painkillers hadn't kicked in. " I'll get through this, I think that's it". It was not clear whether the state of the surface on Court 17 was a contributing factor in Mattek-Sands' accident.

Leadership of every political party must remember that democracy - without fair and transparent across the board accountability - is complete farce and in order to save, nourish democratic process in the country an impartial and strong accountability institution should be formed through an act of Parliament so that justice is done in all the cases without any fear and discrimination.

The top court took up the case in October a year ago on petitions filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Awami Muslim League and Jamaat-e-Islami and reserved the verdict in February after conducting hearings on a daily basis.

The court ordered that its copies should be provided to the parties in the case, including Sharif family.

He rejected the invitation, saying he was not subject to Pakistani law, but invited investigators to visit him in the Qatari capital Doha to record a statement.

There was no confirmation of the report as the court adjourned the hearing till next Monday.

The case was first reported by British media in 1996 when it claimed that the flats were purchased through money laundered by the Sharif family.
