PESHAWAR, 17 June: The Attorney General for Pakistan has told the Supreme Court that the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing Panama Papers case against Sharif family is tapping phone calls of the Prime Minister House and monitoring the witnesses in the case.

Attorney General Ashter Ausaf submitted his report in the apex court on Friday in which he said there is no truth in hacking of Facebook account of the JIT member Bilal Rasool. He said the Ministry of Law and Justice has also rejected all allegations of the JIT. He said the JIT is wasting its time and not doing proper investigation.

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP), National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Law Ministry and Intelligence Bureau have also rejected allegations of the JIT.

The JIT had told the apex court that some individuals and institutions were putting impediments in its investigations into Panama Papers case and unduly criticising the JIT on social media and talk shows.
