Khursheed Shah says commission of no use if forensic audit not conducted


Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader and head of the Opposition Khursheed Shah Friday stated that the judicial commission being formed for investigating into the Panama Leaks case will be of no use if forensic audit is not conducted along with it.

Shah expressed his gratitude to Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif for writing letter to Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali, appealing to him to head the commission for investigating the matter. Shah added that a probe into the matter of PM’s family should be conducted first.

According to local media, the judicial commission formed for investigating Panama Leaks will be indiscriminate and not even the Chief Justice will be able to amend the Terms of Reference (ToR) of the commission.

Meanwhile experts have stated that the commission is not only being formed for investigating the Panama Leaks issue but for tracing corruption in entire history of country.

On the other hand, legal expert Salman Akram Raja stated that the proposed commission will be a criminal court. He added that the commission will not be able to complete its investigation even in 50 years if other issues, along with the Panama Leaks matter, are added into the ToRs.
