SC rejects Hussain Nawaz’s objections regarding JIT members

ISLAMABAD: The special bench of Supreme Court overseeing the implementation of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probe in the Panama case, has dismissed reservations raised by Hussain Nawaz regarding two members of the team.

In his petition filed with the SC, Hussain Nawaz had cast doubts on impartiality of two of the JIT members — Bilal Rasool (SECP) and Amir Aziz (SBP).

The three-member bench, headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, hearing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s son’s petition questioning the credibility of two JIT members, directed the team to continue its proceedings as per law.

The court observed that none of the members of the JIT is being changed. “Without any credible evidence no member of the team will be replaced,” remarked Justice Ejaz Afzal.

On Sunday, the JIT interrogated Hussain Nawaz at the Federal Judicial Academy (FJA) for over two hours.
