Sharif meets top aides to deal with JIT report fallout

Islamabad: Amid calls for his resignation, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif today got into a huddle with his top aides to chalk out a strategy to deal with the Panama case probe panel's damning report that recommended filing of a graft case against him and his family.

The six-member Joint Investigation Team (JIT) that probed the Sharif family's business dealings in its 10-volume report submitted to the apex court yesterday recommended that a corruption case should be filed against Sharif and his sons Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz, as well as daughter Maryam Nawaz, under the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) ordinance 1999.

It found Sharif and his children to be "living beyond the known means of income".

The report, however, was slammed by the Sharif government as "trash" with Sharif's close aide and minister for development Ahsan Iqbal in press conference with other ministers, saying they will challenge the report in the Supreme Court and will "completely expose and unveil its contradictions and falsifications".

Sharif today consulted senior party leaders and loyalists to formulate a policy to deal with the legal and political consequences of the high-level inquiry report against him.
