Possible questions by JIT and their expected replies by PM

 

Shahzeb Khanzada in his Geo programme  summed up the possible questions Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that were possibly asked during his appearance before the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) and his possible replies to these questions.

 

 

Yesterday was  a historic day when an elected prime minister appeared before the country’s institutions to give reply to the allegations and questionns raised on him. But what were the possible questions and their answers.

 

Shahzeb Khanzada said we lay before you the position the government has taken recently outside and inside the Supreme Court. When the Panama case landed at the SC, the issue of conflicting statements in speeches of the prime minister was raised. 

 

 

The JIT might have asked the prime minister about these conflicting statements and say that you have not mentioned the letter from the Qatari prince in your speeches. The team can tell the prime minister that you say different things about how the flats in London were purchased and why did you not mention Qatar in your speeches?

 

Important point in this regard is that in the three to two-member decision of the five-member bench, the SC has already rejected disqualification of the prime minister on the basis of these conflicting statements and then the JIT was formed to investigate the matter further. 

 

Would the prime minister endorses the PML-N position that there are no contradictions in his speeches, and that he mentioned some points at a certain venue and did not mention some points at another venue. The JIT  might have asked the prime minister how did he sell Gulf Steel Mills, Dubai, and then make investment in Qatar. It should have asked the PM about transfer of money from Qatar to Jeddah and from Jeddah to London. 

 

 

The PM can obviously, as has been the stance of his party in recent days, take benefit of the law, telling the JIT that he will not reveal what he is not required to under the law. The PM can also say that all these affairs are about his father and assets were transferred to his children from his father, hence he has nothing to do with it.

He might have said that he has announced his disassociation from his business since he joined politics; hence, he is not liable to answer these questions. He can also say that he is not bound to make explanations about his accounts older than five years.

 

 

The prime minister could have repeated the argument his son Hussain Nawaz’ lawyers placed before the court about the sale of Dubai mills, investment in Qatar, dispatch of letter of Qatari prince and how all these matters were settled down. The important point is that the PML-N and Sharif family lawyers had mentioned the Qatari letter in their arguments. 

 

 

What the PM will say about why did he not mention the Qatari letter in his speeches? Sharif family lawyers have made it clear that permission for mentioning of the letter was not sought from the Qatari family and it was not mentioned in the speeches because of business deals with them. However, when the matter landed in the court, the letter was put on the record with prior permission from the Qatari family. 

 

The PM may be asked about accumulation of assets of his children when their ages were very low. The PML-N has taken a position that the PM can also adopt saying that all these assets were transferred to his children from his father and they had made investment in Qatar after selling mills in Dubai, which continued multiplying later. Hussain Nawaz had told the Panama bench how these assets continued multiplying and then how they were settled in the shape of London flats.

 

 He had also told the bench how the Qatari family paid expenses incurred by Hassan Nawaz and how the rent of flats was adjusted in this regard. The PML-N has already taken this position. The prime minister can however tell the JIT that he is not bound under the law to answer this question.

 

The JIT’s fourth question could be about investments made by Hussain Nawaz and the companies owned by Hassan Nawaz. How this huge investment was made in Saudi Arabia and how Hassan Nawaz made so much assets in the UK. The PM can say that his children are adult and he is not bound to put up a reply on their behalf. He can also endorse the reply submitted by his children, not least Hussain Nawaz, mentioning that a bit of investment was transferred from Qatar to Saudi Arabia to set up a mills there, whose profit was transferred to the UK.

 

The JIT might have asked the PM about the costly gifts he received from Hussain Nawaz. This is a fresh issue as money came to the PM’s accounts from his son. The PM cannot say that he is not bound to answer this question. He had , however, relied on the answer Hussain Nawaz submitted in the court stating that all the transactions were made through official banking channels and all the money has been duly audited and taxed in Saudi Arabia. He had stated that this money was surplus in his company which is proven through audit.

 

The PM was asked about Hudaibia Paper Mills case. The JIT has sought and reviewed all documents about this case already. Questions could be asked of the PM about the investigations launched by the FIA and NAB. The JIT has raised a lot of objections on the PM’s House and Sharif family has raised a lot of objections on the JIT. The SC has given no judgement on this matter so far.
