  • PML-N had rejected JIT report from day one Dr Musadik

The apex court also opened the final part of the 10- Volume report submitted by the Joint Investigation Team it had set up to probe the allegations of money laundering by Sharif.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif by presenting three generations of the Sharif family for accountability, notwithstanding the fact that he enjoyed constitutional immunity, has taken a step for the higher good.

She said that not a single case of misuse of power, corruption or graft had ever been reported or unearthed against Nawaz Sharif during his three tenures as the Prime Minister and two terms as Chief Minister of Punjab, despite the fact that the biased JIT had hired the services of a detective relative of one of its members. Volume X of the report, titled "Mutual Legal Assistance Requests - Ongoing", is related to JIT's worldwide correspondence and the documents obtained from foreign countries during the investigation. Sharif's lawyer Khawaja Harris said the JIT had overstepped its mandate given to it by the court and had based its findings on the documents, which were of no evidentiary value as per the laws of Pakistan. The Supreme Court, acting on petitions from opposition lawmakers, made a decision to establish a six-member Joint Investigation Team to delve into the allegations corruption involving his family, including his daughter and two sons.

The bench remarked that no substantial evidence could be found suggesting Maryam Nawaz was dependent on Nawaz Sharif. Justice Ijazul Ahsan replied that, on the contrary, Hussain Nawaz had said that making such appointments on Saturdays was not possible.

"It is not allegation but a matter of fact that Maryam is the beneficial owner of the flats", he said.
