Allegations of corruption in JIT baseless: Nawaz Sharif

ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said Wednesday the allegations of not cooperating with the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) for Panama case are baseless.

In an address to the party leaders, it was said no one will be allowed to hurt the public mandate. The attendees including legal experts and senior Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) members showed confidence in the premier.

He has summoned a cabinet meeting for Thursday. PM Nawaz made it clear that he will neither dissolve the assemblies nor resign from his position in a meeting to discuss course-of-action of the ruling party after JIT report.

PM has demanded that contradictions in JIT report should also be brought forth in the Supreme Court.

JIT had earlier recommended the apex court to lodge case against Nawaz Sharif and his sons in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

PML-N leaders said PM Nawaz was the most popular leader in Pakistan and people had elected him for five years, adding that they will make sure the public mandate remains intact.
