ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister’s Special Assistant Asif Kirmani on Monday accused the Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) of taking a U-Turn from its mandate of probing Sharif Family’s London properties.
He was talking to media persons outside Federal Judicial Academy (FJA) where he accompanied PM’s son Hassan Nawaz on his third appearance before the six-member probe body.
He said that the JIT has hired services of a London-based law firm on a heavy price. The same documents could have been acquired from the Supreme Court, he maintained.
“This is the people’s money. The public wants to know who the JIT obliged by getting the legal firm on board,” he said.
The JIT report would remain inconclusive unless the statement of Qatari prince is incorporated in it, Kirmani added. Why the JIT is avoiding going to Qatar, it is not on North Pole, he asked. ‘If you are investigating London flats then you should go to Qatar.’
He claimed that after the JIT did not find anything on the London’s Park Lane flats, investigators are now probing the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case, which has been quashed by the Lahore High Court.
