Islamabad (Staff Report): The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) tasked to probe Sharif family’s offshore assets in line with the apex court’s April 20 verdict in the Panama case on Monday informed the apex court that the records related to the Panama Papers case are being tampered with some government departments to assist the PM’s family.

The JIT submitted its report to the special implementation bench headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan and comprising Justices Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Ijazul Ahsan.

“The JIT has alleged that certain institutions are altering records. Even forgery has been carried out,” remarked Justice Ijazul Ahsen on Monday. “There are serious allegations levelled by the JIT in its application.”

The bench observed that if hurdles are created in the work of the JIT, they will not be able to complete their probe in time.

The bench sought a reply from the Attorney General’s Office over the JIT's objections.
