ISLAMABAD -UNS – The top PML-N leadership on Saturday made it clear that the ruling party will not accept the findings of the joint investigation team (JIT) if the statements of former Qatari prime minister are not made part of the report.
This was said in a press conference jointly addressed by Defence Minister Khawaja Asif, Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique, Petroleum Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal.
If Qatar’s former PM is not made a part of the investigation, the JIT report will be compromised and we will not accept it, the PML-N leaders maintained.
The joint press conference focused on the proceedings of the JIT which is probing Sharif family’s business dealings abroad. During the PML-N ministers repeatedly raised questions on the functioning of the JIT and expressed reservations on the process of investigation.
Khawaja Asif said that those behind repressing the investigation are not doing it based on the law but on the basis of a dice they have rolled against us.
He said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Hasan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz and Maryam Nawaz have all presented themselves before the joint investigation team.
