Capt (r) Safdar to JIT: Panama probe "modern 58(2b)"


Captain (Retd) Safdar said the Panama Paper Leaks was not the accountability of Nawaz Sharif, rather an affront on two-nation theory.

Shortly after reaching London, while addressing the media, he criticised the Panama's Joint Investigation Team and questioned the creation of such a team.

He strongly said that the probe was against Nawaz Sharif who had envisioned development and progress of the country.

PM Nawaz said that during the tenure of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Pakistan's economy has been stabilised but the frequent opposition sit-ins are hurting it with no regard for the country.

In its second report submitted to the Supreme Court, the JIT has alleged that the SECP Chairperson Zafar-ul-Haq Hijazi and Executive Director Ali Azeem were tampering the records of Chaudhry Sugar Mills the team had asked for.

He warned political opponents, particularly Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan, from conspiraing to derail the government of Nawaz Sharif or else they will not be remembered well in history.

He confirmed having presented two letters written to former president Muhammad Rafique Tarar and other evidences pertaining to the money laundering allegations.

The JIT - formed on May 6 - was given 60 days to complete its probe into the Sharif family's worldwide financial dealings and submit its report to the Supreme Court's special implementation bench overseeing its proceedings.
