KARACHI: According to sources, on Thursday a joint investigation team (JIT) formed by the Supreme Court to probe into an ongoing money laundering case has set up its secretariat in Karachi.
Sources said that JIT members agreed on setting up the secretariat in Karachi instead of Islamabad.
“Following their decision, the secretariat was established in Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) new building in Gulistan-e-Jauhar area of the metropolis,” sources added.
last week, the Supreme Court directed the JIT to set up its secretariat at a place convenient to it.
FIA Additional Director General Ahsan Sadiq is heading the JIT which is probing the alleged money laundering of Rs35 billion via fake bank accounts.
On September 6, the Supreme Court announced the names of six members of the JIT.
