Bizenjo says JIT report based on bad intentions

  • Minister calls JIT team dishonest due to proceedings

Federal Minister for Ports and Shipping Mir Hasil Bizenjo has said that the final report of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) is based on bad intensions and it seems that the team is not investigating political but criminal people.

Addressing the press conference, he said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif accepted court verdicts with honest intensions. He warned that there would be worse results if the country was attempted to weaken from inside.

Bizenjo said that a crisis-like situation exists because of the Panama Papers case. To a question, he said that the joint investigation team was dishonest in the way it conducted the proceedings. He said that the Pakistan Muslim League-N should challenge such a JIT that is based on dishonesty.

The Panama Papers saga enters what may likely be its final round on Monday as the Supreme Court will hear responses of all the parties over the JIT report. All eyes are fixed on the Supreme Court as the future course of the over-year long episode is likely to be determined by the court.

The minister said that the court would have to see the case with complete seriousness, as the prime minister presented himself and his family in respect of courts. He said that a crisis-like situation must end.
