Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday cast doubts over the joint investigation team (JIT), as he termed the probe – conducted by the JIT on the Panamagate case regarding a corruption reference – as biased and lacking evidence.
He also said that the statements recorded in the Panama case by JIT were not credible. The Accountability court judge Muhammad Arshad Malik resumed the hearing of the Al-Azizia graft case, filed by the National Accountability Bureau last year in the light of the Panama Papers case verdict.
The former premier asserted that the statements recorded by the JIT could not be accepted as evidence as they were not credible. He reiterated that the money deposited in his account from abroad was documented in the records of the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR).
Nawaz Sharif further said that he had also challenged the JIT report in the Supreme Court.
