JIT Report May Not Be Last Word On PM’s Fate

No comments :
There is one definite piece of media reporting that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will be given the opportunity to defend himself in the Atlantic, but the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) will file a complaint about the money laundering charges by the Sharif family on July 10 Is expected. court.

The order in which the five SC bench in the Panamanian paper action on April 20 passed is apparent as the operating paragraph of the 547-page ruling turns out to be: "... at the time of receipt of the report, You have to consider the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif, and if you find it necessary to pass the appropriate orders on your behalf, you can summon and investigate one more time. "

However, legal experts envision several scenarios of court proceedings after JIT submits the report.

If the JIT presents solid evidence for them, there is confusion about the forum where the trial of PM and others is held.

A Supreme Court judge, composed of Judge Asif Saeed Khosa, Judge Gulzar Ahmed, Judge Ejaz Afzal Khan, Judge Azmat Saeed Sheikh and Judge Ijazul Ahsan, instructed JIT to submit the report after the investigation.

"JIT must complete the investigation and submit a final report in front of the bench within 60 days."

After July 10th Scenario discussion Sharif will defend himself on SC.

By sending a reference to the relevant forum for further proceedings, "then the bench can deliver the appropriate order to submit a reference to Responder 1 (Nawaz Sharif) or someone else linked to the crime. Materials ".

In light of court rulings, the additional procedure for the Sharif family can conclude that the JIT is highly relevant to what the report can say in a few days.

Famous law expert S.M. Zafar said the facts would be submitted to the apex court because the JIT was a 'fact-collection' subject.

The Supreme Court ordered the JIT to collect evidence through the reference clause, so the investigator team should stick to his mission, he said. He added that if the JIT expresses his opinion, it is important to exceed his obligation because the opinion can be valid or affect other parties, he added.

He said two of the five-man bench members are already unlikely to resume the bench because they have already revealed their mind by demanding the disqualification of PM. Three other member states will then adopt the report and proceed with the case, he added.

Zafar said the court could provide a copy of the investigation report to petitioners and respondents and raise their opinions or objections.

After hearing the parties in this case, he said the court will issue a final ruling on Sharif or other people's disqualification. The court can deprive PM, impose him, or send a reference to the appropriate forum.

The forum could be a court of accountability or a special judge, he said.

If, on the basis of available data, the Supreme Court finds that the PM is honest and not luxurious, he may be disqualified or sent to the ECP.

Former Chief Justice of Pakistan, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, sent several congressional elections on the basis of his fake degree.

A senior official at the ECP said the fake degree holders were sent home in accordance with Article 78 of the People's Representative Law, which imposed a three-year prison sentence and a fine on lawmakers who submitted fake documents before the ECP.

In the case of PM, however, it is different because ECP did not make a false declaration before ECP. The elite court, therefore, would consider his case under Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution, he said.

Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court's Bar Association, Kamran Murtaza, said that because the JIT was formed at the Supreme Court's orders, the court will regulate the proceedings and review the report.

He said the court will provide an opportunity for hearings on the parties, especially those who may be affected by the investigation report. "At least for the parties, we can open the report and start hearing the problem," he said.

Murtaza had the opinion that Apex could not disqualify Sharif as contrary to the principles of natural law.

Regarding the bench configuration, he said the Chief Justice can reconfigure the bench if two bench members do not have to hear their arguments based on previous objections.
