JIT expresses “Hurdles” in investigation to Supreme Court

ISLAMABAD: The six-member joint investigation team (JIT) headed by Additional Director FIA, Mr. Wajid Zia on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that it was facing a number of hurdles and problems in its investigations  into money-laundering allegations.

But team leader Wajid Zia did not explain the nature of the problems faced by JIT, nor did a three-judge Supreme Court implementation bench headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan constituted specifically to implement the April 20 Supreme Court judgement in the Panama Papers case ask who was creating disturbance for the investigation team.

But the bench asked Mr Zia to submit an application to the court in this regard.

When filed, these apprehensions will be taken up in the open court on Monday, when Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf will also be asked to ensure that all such issues are attended to.
