ISLAMABAD: Former interior minister Rehman Malik will appear on Friday (today) before the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his children on allegations stemming from the Panama Papers, ARY News reported.
The PPP leader, who is also a former FIA additional director general, will place before the JIT members details of the investigation that he had carried out against the first family back in 1994-95 with regard to its Hudaibya Paper Mills.
In a press briefing earlier this week, Malik had said he would act before the JIT in a non-partisan manner and record his statement impartially.
A day before the Supreme Court had directed the JIT, headed by FIA’s additional director general Wajid Zia, to submit its final report of investigation on July 10.
During the hearing of the Panama Papers implementation case, the JIT submitted third fortnight report prepared in the light of questioning of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and PM’s sons Hussain and Hassan Nawaz.
The JIT is yet to record the statement of Captain (retd) Safdar he would appear before it on June 24. A day before yesterday it had rejected his plea for rescheduling his appearance before it owing to his planned trip to Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah this week.
