Panama Leaks: 51pc Pakistanis believe decision will be against prime minister

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan took to task on Wednesday Prime Minister's daughter Maryam Nawaz for appearing before the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) with, what he called, an "official protocol".

In a sample size of 1,700 participants, 48pc suggested that the judiciary will give a clean chit to the first family and the percent chose not to give an answer.

A female police officer who saluted Maryam Nawaz on his arrival to the Federal Judicial Academy (FJA) when she arrived to appear before Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) has been served legal notice.

She repeatedly said that the JIT had no proof against her and her family. However, she claimed that when she had asked about her crime, the investigators did not spell out the specific allegations.

The survey also said that 43pc people believed that criticism of JIT on social media and other platforms was justified while 57pc said it was not.

Mayram is the eighth member of the Sharif family to be questioned by the JIT.

"I have answered whatever questions they [investigators] asked me", Maryam said. They also carried banners inscribed with slogans in favour of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz. "They had no answer to my question", she said. "Whatever the JIT members asked, I answered.", despite the fact that my name was not included in the Supreme Court's orders on Panama case, I answered to all questions and faced the JIT", she said.

A large number of Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) leaders especially women have also gathered outside the judicial academy to express solidarity with Maryam Nawaz.

Prime Minister Nawaz said that the two sides also identified the need for increased cooperation in agriculture, industry, education and culture. Those who are hatching conspiracies should keep in mind that Nawaz Sharif has support of the people, she added. "Will appear before the JIT, follow the rule of law as you always have", she continued.

In a meeting with his Tajik Counterpart Qohir Rasulzoda at the State Guest House in Dushanbe, Nawaz Sharif said that there was a tremendous potential to boost trade between the two Countries.
