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.
â€œThe 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,â€ the militaryâ€™s media wing, Inter-Service Public Relations, said in a statement.
According to the communiquÃ©, the 202nd Corps Commanders Conference discussed the Panama Case verdict by the Supreme Court of Pakistan â€œwith special reference to JITâ€. 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 â€œas and when required.â€ The development came a day after the SC ordered formation of a JIT to further probe the premier familyâ€™s offshore assets.
The court ruled, on April 20, that there wasnâ€™t enough evidence to disqualify the premier but that he and his sons Hussain and Hasan Nawaz were to appear before the JIT.
