ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Political Affairs Dr Asif Kirmani Wednesday said Supreme Court should order Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to record statement of Qatari prince, a prime witness in the case of Panama Papers.
Talking to mediamen outside the Judicial Academy here, Kirmani said Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) was looking for justice and it was important that Supreme Court should order the JIT to record the statement of Qatari prince.
He said the JIT would only be considered trust worthy if it recorded the statement of Qatari prince. He said he had some questions to ask from the JIT, which was using taxpayers money to visit Dubai and hire a legal firm in United Kingdom. He said there were elements who wanted to destabilise Pakistan and the government of Nawaz Sharif.
For the last four years, Nawaz Sharif had faced sit-ins and constant conspiracies, he said adding Pakistan had kept on moving on the path of progress in the tenure of present government. He said he still remembered the day of July 5, 1977 when a democratic government was removed and now again Pakistan was going through a critical phase. He said today Maryam Nawaz appeared before JIT as she was summoned by it.
Dr Kirmani said Imran Khan considered himself self-proclaimed Mr Clean but he possessed assets which he never declared in his tax returns. He said Imran Khan was a man of many faces and was playing games, adding Imran Khan would be disqualified because of the foreign funding case against him in Election Commission. He termed the statement of Rehman Malik before the JIT as worthless.
Kirmani said there was nothing wrong with doing business abroad, adding millions of Pakistanis live abroad and work and run businesses. He said Nawaz Sharif was not receiving any salary as Prime Minister.
