The Supreme Court of Pakistan today announced its verdict in the Panama Papers case, ordering formation of the joint investigation team to probe offshore properties of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family.
The judgement of the apex court was anxiously awaited, with speculations going rounds that the PM could be ousted. But the verdict bounds the premier to face the investigation team.
Teh probe team will comprise officials of National Accountability Bureau, Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP), State Bank of Pakistan, Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence (MI) and will be led by a director-general level FIA officer.
