Shahbaz Sharif says biased JIT targetting his family

He said those levelling corruption allegations would not be able to find anything as "their allegations are shallow", adding that by respecting judiciary, the political stature of the Sharif family had further increased.

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Saturday took on the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), saying it was pursuing a Panamagate case filed against the Sharif family in a biased manner.

Sharif's family has acknowledged owning offshore businesses, but says it was done with legal money.

Donald Trump sued over president's business benefits
The president called an earlier, similar lawsuit about the emoluments issue "without merit, totally without merit". The Trump Organization has said it will donate profits from customers representing foreign governments to the U.S.

He also questioned those who were saying that as the Prime Minister appeared before the JIT, he should resign. He stated that there were certain measures taken in former President Pervez Musharraf era, but then the Sharif family was ousted from the country with 40 suitcases following a deal. Sharif, accompanied by daughter Maryam Nawaz, one of his sons and his younger brother, seemed relaxed as he stepped out of his vehicle heading into the academy.

Senator Saeed Ghani responded Sharif family has never been held accountable.

On Thursday, the prime minister appeared before the JIT for three hours after being summoned to answer questions and record his statement. The Supreme Court has been pretty clear about its no-nonsense approach towards the JIT, even if the honourable court itself left a little something to be desired while investigating the case - strangely not asking for the money trail of said Panama companies, even though it is the first port of call in such cases.

Cristiano Ronaldo: Portugal shouldn't panic after Mexico draw
Mexico's all-time leading scorer still had time before the end of the half to blaze over from a good position. His pass split the Mexican defence and gave Ricardo Quaresma a golden opportunity to open the scoring.

The prime minister's brother was accompanied by his son, Hamza Shahbaz, Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on his way to the JIT secretariat, according to DawnNews.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should rather get praise for his willingness to present himself for scrutiny.

Marriyum Aurangzeb said the way the Prime Minister has presented himself before the law and constitution, the PTI chairman should also come out of his abode in Nathiagali and appear before the courts.
