Govt demands 10th volume of JIT report: marriyum

ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb has said that report of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing Panama Papers case does not reflect the decision of the court while demanding the 10th volume of the report.

Talking to media outside the Supreme Court in Islamabad on Monday, she said that Supreme Court is not bound to accept the recommendations of the JIT report. She expressed the confidence that the apex court will give its verdict according to the law of the country.

Marriyum Aurangzeb said that documents submitted by JIT are not verified and asked as to who will take the ownership of these documents?

She demanded that the volume ten of the JIT report should be made public; questioning that under what rule is JIT still working? She said the people of the country need an answer to this question.

She added that JIT could not find any evidence against the Prime Minister about corruption or money laundering of public money during his tenure of holding public offices for thirty-five years.

She said a group of people is engaged in hatching conspiracies against the Prime Minister. She said their nefarious designs will be exposed after the decision of the apex court.

Talking about today’s terrorist attack in Peshawar, she said that such dastardly attacks cannot deter the resolve of the government to eliminate terrorism.
