Musharraf says Nisar should be new PM

ISLAMABAD, JUL 29 (DNA) – Former military ruler and All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Chairman Pervez Musharraf has said that the Supreme Court and the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) made history and deserve huge applause and appreciation.

“I salute to the bravery and courage of judges and JIT members who ensured transparent and impartial investigation against Sharif family and rendered a judgment that will set a precedent and will deter corruption and corrupt practices in future,” he said while expressing his views about the Supreme Court judgment in Panama Papers case.

Musharraf said that the rest of six people who were found involved should be put on exit control list (ECL) and tried. He expressed his views through a video message after the court announced its judgment. He said that this decision would set an example that no one was above the law and regarding future course of action, if a person has to contest for the public office, he must come clean.

“My party and me fully support this judgment,” he said, adding that this was not an easy task to render a judgment like this. “JIT members completed their work under extreme pressure and they were ‘threatened’ as well,” he claimed. Despite this, they did a marvelous job to dig out the decades old secrets about the empire that was structured at ill-gotten money,” he said.
