Panama Papers Investigators Recommend Reopening 15 Cases Against Nawaz Sharif

Islamabad:  The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) which probed the Panama Papers case against Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family assets has recommended reopening 15 cases against Mr Sharif, the media reported on Sunday.

Of these 15 cases, three were registered during the 1994 and 2011 tenures of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and 12 during President Pervez Musharraf regime, soon after he toppled the Mr Sharif government in the October 1999 military coup, reports Dawn News.

The case regarding the Sharif family’s four London apartments was also among the investigations started by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in December 1999.

In its April 20 verdict, the country’s Supreme Court asked the JIT to investigate the money trail for the London flats, Dawn News reported.
