Two members of the Joint Investigation Team for Panama probe will leave for Doha to verify the letter from Qatari Prince referring to the business ties with the Sharif family.
JIT head Wajid Zia has contacted the Supreme Court’s registrar office and awaits the approval from Panama case implementation bench. According to the recommendation, two JIT members will visit Doha to investigate the Qatari letter.
Sources told the Qatari Prince Hamad bin Jasim Al-Thani had asked the Panama probe JIT to arrive in Qatar in order to record his statements about the financial details with the premier’s family.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had appeared before the JIT on Thursday for three consecutive hours along with the required documents. In a media talk later on, he said, “I have presented myself, government and family before the JIT for trial.”
Sources told the JIT members are waiting for approval from Supreme Court before leaving for Doha. They will leave as soon as the approval is provided by the apex court.
Qatari Prince had earlier refused to appear before JIT and visit Pakistan due to certain concerns. He had, however, agreed to record statement if the investigation team visited the Gulf country.
It should be noted that his brother and Chief Minister of Punjab, Shehbaz Sharif, was also summoned by JIT earlier this week. Ishaq Dar, Rehman Malik and Captain Safdar are next on the list in the JIT appearances.
