Islamabad (Staff Report): The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) has mentioned in its final report to Supreme Court the details of 32 cases against the Sharif family over the years.

The report stated that between the years of 1999-2000, a total of eight inquiries and investigations had been in process, but despite the passing of 18 years, these investigations could not progress due to various reasons.

The under process investigations also include the Avenfield properties case and offshore companies, still pending further investigation.

An FIR was also registered upon the directives of the apex court against SECP chairman Zafar Hijazi for tampering official records.

The criminal case was registered against Hijazi under sections 466 and 471 of the Pakistan Penal Code.
