Military to play ‘due role’ in Panamagate case investigation

The military will play its due role in a legal and transparent manner in the investigation of the Panamagate case, the corps commanders resolved on Monday.

“The forum pledged that the institution, through its members in joint investigation team, shall play its due role in a legal and transparent manner fulfilling confidence reposed by the apex court of Pakistan,” the military’s media wing, Inter-Service Public Relations, said in a statement.

According to the communiqué, the 202nd Corps Commanders Conference discussed the Panama Case verdict by the Supreme Court of Pakistan “with special reference to JIT”. The participants of the meeting also reviewed progress of the ongoing countrywide military offensive Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad.

On Saturday, the top court issued notices to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his sons, directing them to comply with the Panamagate verdict “as and when required.” The development came a day after the SC ordered formation of a JIT to further probe the premier family’s offshore assets.

The court ruled, on April 20, that there wasn’t enough evidence to disqualify the premier but that he and his sons Hussain and Hasan Nawaz were to appear before the JIT.
