JIT report contains sensitive legal issues, says Asma


Former Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) president Asma Jahangir on Friday said the report by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) should be left to the Supreme Court to decide upon as it contains very sensitive legal issues.

She said that the JIT report was an investigation and investigations were challenged in courts and the JIT was not the same as the Supreme Court. She said that the report was leaked and now the media was carrying out a trial based on the leaked documents.

She said that the Supreme Court can be shut down if the media continues to play the role of the judiciary. The JIT submitted its final report to the apex court on July 10. It formed on May 5 in light of the Supreme Court’s April 20 judgment and was tasked to ascertain the money trail of the Sharif family.
