'No single sentence which points out corruption committed by Nawaz Sharif'

JIT report rejected, says Pak PM Nawaz Sharif's daughter

JIT report rejected, says Pak PM Nawaz Sharif's daughter

Sharif pointed to the opposition parties who have been demanding his resignation following the release of the report, and said, "The people of Pakistan have elected me and only they can remove me from this post".

Sharif is the only Pakistani politician who has the distinction of being the prime minister of the coup-prone country for a record three times.

In papers submitted to the Panama Papers Joint Investigation Team (JIT) by Maryam Nawaz Sharif, papers that "prove" her ownership of certain high-end properties in London (but actually bought via shell companies based in the UK), the font Calibri has been used. While the Pakistan Supreme Court directed the JIT to carry out the probe, so far Sharif has escaped being completely pinned down and has been allowed to continue as prime minister.

The disparity is obvious because the declared assets of the Sharif family pale in the face of what their true worth is, as per the revelations of the Panama Papers investigations.

The JIT in its final report on the money laundering case against the Sharif family, submitted on 10 July, had recommended that a corruption case be filed against Sharif and his sons Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz, as well as daughter Maryam Nawaz, under the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) ordinance, 1999. He demanded the names of those involved in the so-called conspiracy be revealed.

Nawaz Sharif went on to say that he had done nothing wrong and his conscience was clear.

The crisis hit the Sharif family when the Panama Papers disclosed past year three of Prime Minister Sharif's children owned offshore companies and assets not shown on his family's wealth statement. Earlier this week, the JITdeclared in its report that Prime Minister Sharif remained chairman of FZE Capital Company in Dubai contrary to his statement in Parliament that he had not been part of any business since 1998.

Sharif held two back-to-back meetings with senior party leaders and advisors, which was followed by a cabinet meeting yesterday.

The cabinet reposed full confidence in the leadership of the prime minister and endorsed his firm decision not to step down. Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf leaders Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Jehangir Tareen claimed that divisions have surfaced within the PML-N over resignation of the prime minister.

Supporters of Sharif's ruling PML-N party argued that Calibri has been publicly available since 2004.
