Talal Chaudhry demands probe into Raymond Davis episode


Islamabad July 4 (TNS): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz MNA Talal Chaudhry on Tuesday demanded that the characters behind the release of CIA contactor Raymond Davis should also be held accountable for compromising the national security.

While talking to the Federal Judicial Academy, he feared that insignificant people were made scapegoat in the episode of the CIA contactor, some innocent people may be put to sacrifice this time again if the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) was further allowed to probe the Panama Papers case the way it is conducting it.

“It is crystal clear who is writing the JIR reports. We have not made the JIT controversial, it’s their working and conduct that has made it debatable. Now the Qatari prince is chasing the JIT but it is escaping,” he said.

Talal said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family have presented themselves for accountability but it was PTI chief Imran Khan who was accountability. “Imran Khan, you don’t have the money trail. You will be held accountability by the JIT of the 180 million masses,” the PML-N lawmaker said adding that the prime minister has made history by presenting his daughter Maryam Nawaz to accountability.

He said that the Sharif family and the prime minister is giving accountability of the last 70 years.
