ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should resign before the Joint Investigation Team’s session on June 15 (Thursday), for which he has been summoned to record his statement.
Imran Khan was speaking to media, where he said that the JIT is facing hurdles.
Imran said that Nawaz Sharif is a criminal and facing allegation of money laundering which is a serious offence.
The PTI Chief demanded that the report of the issues faced by the JIT should be made public as well.
“No one trusts a PM abroad, who is facing criminal investigation back at home,” said Imran, adding that the Qatari letter is also a hoax, as the royal family members have refused to appear before the JIT.
Meanwhile, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said that PM is due to appear before the JIT on Thursday.
Today, the Panama case JIT informed the apex court that it will be unable to complete its probe in the given 60-day time period due to ‘difficulties’ created by some state institutions.
In a statement issued to the media on Sunday night, the PM House confirmed having received the summons from the JIT and said the premier would appear before it on June 15.
The JIT has already questioned the premier’s elder son five times and his younger son, Hassan Nawaz, twice.
The decision was hailed by the PTI chief, who took to Twitter to express his views.
