JIT report would be challenged in the Supreme Court and the court of the people: Government Ministers
Finance Minister Ishaq Dar says the JIT investigation report on Panama Papers case contains many gaps and flaws, which will soon be challenged in the Supreme Court.
Addressing a joint news conference along with Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique and Special Assistant to Prime Minister Barrister Zafarullah Khan in Islamabad, Ishaq Dar says the PML-N legal team is reviewing the report, and the response will be submitted to the court with arguments and evidence. Many documents included in the report do not contain any signatures. Khawaja Saad Rafique says JIT did not ask any question about the documents submitted to the court. JIT acted partially, and its report is based on ill-intentions. The Minister terms the JIT report part of a conspiracy against the government. Barrister Zafarulla Khan says the JIT report is being presented as a decision. There is a great difference between a court decision and an investigation report.
