The Joint Investigation Team (JIT), formed by the Supreme Court to investigate alleged corruption by the first family, has approached the apex court’s registrar office for visiting Qatar, revealed sources on Thursday.
The investigation team needs approval from the apex court bench before it can travel of the country.
Sources also revealed that two members of the JIT will travel to Doha after permission is received from the court.
Earlier, the JIT received a second letter from Qatari Prince Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jaber Al-Thani, informing the JIT that the royal family member has no qualms if investigators visit him in Doha to record his statement.
The investigation team had written twice to the prince to record his statement regarding the prime minister’s family’s business dealings abroad.
