JIT urgesNAB to file reference against Nawaz Sharif, sons

Imran Khan to file another reference against Shehbaz Sharif in SC

"Significant gap/disparity among the known and declared sources of income and the wealth accumulated by the Respondent No. 1, 6, 7 and 8 have been observed", said the investigation team in its closing remarks, reports the News.

He said arch rivals of Nawaz Sharif were made part of the JIT.

Speaking to media outside Supreme Court, Daniyal said out of 450 names of Pakistanis mentioned in the Panama Papers, just only one case was filed against Sharif family.

The JIT has recommended to the apex court to open a corruption case against the prime minister and his family after it found glaring disparities between their known sources of income and their actual wealth.

After receiving the report, the top court allowed the petitioners and respondents in the case to obtain copy of the report from the apex court's registrar office.

However, the Sharif family's prime defence in the case - Qatari Prince Hamad Bin Jassim bin Jaber al Thani who supported the Sharifs money trail through two separate letters - did not appear before the probe team.

Earlier, JIT chief Wajid Zia presented the 10-volume report along with evidence to the three-member special bench of the Supreme Court comprising Justice Ejaz Afzal, Justice Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijazul Ahsan.

Members of his family - and last month Sharif, personally - have appeared before a Supreme Court-appointed team investigating the family's offshore companies.

"Nawaz Sharif has no moral standing left", Khan told reporters at a press conference on Monday.

He claimed that JIT members were biased, which was against the principles of justice. The assets in question are four apartments costing several million pounds in Park Lane, London, which according to Panama Papers were purchased through off shore companies Nielson and Nescol but hidden from tax authorities in Pakistan.

The top court took up the case in October a year ago on petitions filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Awami Muslim League and Jamaat-e-Islami and reserved the verdict in February after conducting hearings on a daily basis. Besides his three children, the panel questioned his daughter Maryam's husband Muhammad Safdar Awan, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, who is related to the Prime Minister's family through marriage.
