Panama JIT to remain ineffective just like Model Town’s, claims Aitzaz

ISLAMABAD: PPP’s Aitzaz Ahsan said on Friday that the Joint Investigation Team, which will be formed by the Supreme Court will remain ineffective, just like the one formed for the Model Town incident was.

Ahsan was talking to the media after a chaotic National Assembly session on Friday.”They get 14 people martyred in Model Town [Lahore], nothing happens,” Ahsan further remarked. “A JIT was formed for that incident as well but nothing has happened yet.”

He said that he already rejects the JIT that has yet to be formed. Aitzaz Ahsan asserted that he has observed that policies are conveniently bent whenever Nawaz Sharif and his family are in question.

A day earlier PPP Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari held a press conference where he said they rejected the Supreme Court’s verdict and that the Prime Minister should tender his resignation.

“I condemn this joke with the nation. I condemn this justice and judgment,” he added. “Today democracy and justice were adversely affected.”

“I salute the two senior judges who gave the disqualification verdict against Prime Minister – decision of senior judges prevails over junior judges,” he said.

“Can a 19-grade officer under the Prime Minister do what the Supreme Court couldn’t?, ” he remarked. “Will they investigate him, will they  disqualify him, will they take the statement from the Prime Minister from the PM house or police station.”
