ISLAMABAD: Defence lawyer Khawaja Haris on Tuesday has completed cross-examination of head of Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) Wajid Zia in Avenfield reference on tenth day.
During a hearing headed by Justice Mohammad Bashir, ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar appeared in accountability court.
Khawaja Haris asked Zia whether Nawaz Sharif was possessing shares of offshore companies over which, Zia said that JIT didn’t find any of such evidence. He said that the ex-premier neither had shares nor certificates of Nelson and Nescol company.
Responding to a question, Zia said that he got to know about the relationship of JIT member Bilal Rasool with Mian Azhar but he didn’t know that his wife contested elections from Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q).
Meanwhile, Nawaz Sharif lashed out at the JIT formed to probe Panamagate case saying that three out of the six members are their worst political opponents.
“Panama JIT intentionally hid documents which were in our favor in the case. The secrets of the report are being revealed one by one. Wajid Zia himself said that no evidence related to salary was found. This case is only to take revenge from Nawaz Sharif. JIT’s three gems are our worst political opponents,” notified Sharif while speaking to journalists outside accountability court.
“I am not a terrorist then why members of ISI and MI have been included in Panama JIT?” he asked. “I do not bow to anyone except Allah,” said Nawaz Sharif.
“Preparations in Adiala jail have already begun. How do they know that someone is coming?” he questioned.
Nawaz Sharif maintained that loyal and faithful people are standing at his right and left. He asked not to level every blame and accusation on him.
