(Pak Destiny) Panama II has begun as the Supreme Court on Friday formed a six-member Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to probe offshore business of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his two sons – Hasan and Hussain – and daughter Maryam.
The JIT members are – ISI’s Brigadier Nauman Saeed, Brigadier Kamran Khurshid from the Military Intelligence (MI), Aamer Aziz from the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), Bilal Rasool from the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP), Irfan Naeem Mangi from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and Wajid Zia from the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
Wajid Zia, Additional Director General (Immigration), FIA will head the JIT.
The JIT is tasked to complete its investigation within 60 days from the date of formation. The Supreme Court has already framed eight questions which are supposed to be probed by the JIT. The Supreme Court has asked the JIT to submit fortnightly progress reports as stipulated in its April 20 verdict.
The Sharif family is in the dock as it may not find an escape from the investigation of JIT. PTI of Imran Khan is equally happy pinning a lot of hopes from it believing that Nawaz Sharif will eventually be disqualified. – Pak Destiny
