Pakistan Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said on Sunday that the army has no direct link with the Panama case Joint Investigation Team (JIT).
Addressing a press conference on the launch of a new military operation in Khyber Agency, the army spokesperson faced a barrage of queries related to the country’s political situation despite his repeated refusals to get into any controversy.
In reply to a question, Maj Gen Ghafoor said the members of the JIT worked with honesty and dedication. “It is a sub-judice matter and the Supreme Court will make its decision in the case,” he said.
When asked to comment on reports that the army is part of a conspiracy to remove the government, he said “I don’t think this even merits a response. I have shown you what the army is doing”.
“It is the duty of every Pakistani to ensure the supremacy of the law and Constitution,” he said in answer to another question.
