Islamabad, Apr 20: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday narrowly survived from getting disqualified after three judges involved in the verdict ordered to set up a Joint Investigation Team within a week to probe the money laundering allegations against his family. The Supreme Court has asked the JIT to submit its report in the next 60 days.
The Supreme Court’s 3-2 split verdict allowed Sharif to continue as the Prime Minister of the country. However, the court in its verdict ordered Hasan and Hussain, the two sons of Nawaz Sharif to appear before the JIT as well as the officials belonging to the Security and Exchange Commission of Pakistan, Military Intelligence and National Accountability Bureau.
