Sharif Family Lawyer Continues Arguments In SC

Lawyer of Sharif family Khawaja Harris continued his arguments in Supreme Court (SC) over Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report today (Wednesday).

Members of different political parties and their lawyers reached the court for the hearing. On the occasion, strict security measurements have also been ensured by deploying heavy contingent of security officers around the court to avoid any untoward situation.

Earlier, SC bench had clarified the Sharif family to prove money trail, here or in trial court. Justice Ijazul Ahsan said that Sharif family adopted the approach to not tell anything to the JIT that was tasked to inspect every available record.

Sharif family lawyer Khawaja Harris said neither JIT report is authentic nor its probe was fair. He said that JIT proceeded from the mandate as it was allowed to find answers of only thirteen questions but it included two more queries by its own. No probe can be carried out on the report as JIT didn’t collect evidence through legal source, he continued.
