Islamabad: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) today threatened to reject the findings of a joint investigation team (JIT) probing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family for tax evasion.

The six-member JIT set up in May by the Supreme Court is investigating the Sharifs for allegedly failing to provide the trail of money used to buy properties in London in 1990s.

The JIT questioned Sharif, his daughter and two sons, and several of his family members, close aides and top current and former officials. It is expected to submit it report tomorrow at the completion of a 60-day deadline. Four federal ministers considered close to Sharif in a press conference said the PML-N will not accept the JIT report.
