Islamabad [Pakistan], July 9 (ANI): A Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) inquiry into Panamagate joint investigation team's allegations that state institutions are tampering records has found Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) Chairman Zafar Hijazi guilty of tampering the records of companies owned by the Sharif family. The probing team has also recommended registering a First Information Report (FIR) against Hijazi, reports the Dawn. The team submitted a 28-page inquiry report to the Supreme Court (SC) on Saturday, in which it endorsed the stance of the joint investigation team (JIT) probing the offshore assets of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family in connection to the Panamagate case. Last month, the JIT told the SC state institutions are working in favour of the ruling regime by tampering records and creating impediments in its work, besides threatening some members of the team.
