Jamaat e Islami (JI) Ameer Senator Sirajul Haq has filed a fresh petition in the Supreme Court (SC) requesting that the proposed enquiry commission to probe the Panama Leaks issue should be given full judicial powers to enable it to seek total cooperation and assistance from all state institutions in this respect.

The JI chief said the nation had full confidence in the SC, and he hoped that the apex court would deliver such a decision that would make corruption something that is intolerable in the society.

The JI chief, in his petition, prayed that Panama Leaks be treated as the basic document for enquiry and trial, and thorough enquiry to be made into the business and the properties of the persons and the families named there. He also requested that the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) and the Election Commission be bound to present the tax returns and the details of the assets and properties of all these people before the enquiry commission. The commission should also have the powers to collect all relevant information and documents from international institutions under the international laws and also to get the forensic audit of the entire record.

Meanwhile, while addressing different public gatherings at Timargara, the JI chief said that all state institutions were bound under the constitution to implement the orders of the SC and the nation would not tolerate any delinquency in this regard.

He said the Panama Leaks had become a noose around the neck of the rulers and those plundering public money would not escape.

Haq said the situation demanded that the apex court immediately set up a judicial commission to hold a thorough enquiry into the loot and plunder of the public wealth so that the plunderers are punished under the law.

The commission should also have the powers to collect all relevant information and documents from international institutions under the international laws and also to get the forensic audit of the entire record, he added.
