Ex-Justice Azmat Saeed to lead committee probing Broadsheet scandal

ISLAMABAD: The federal government on Thursday picked former judge of Supreme Court of Pakistan, Justice (retd) Azmat Saeed Sheikh, to lead an investigation committee on Broadsheet case.

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz confirmed the development on his Twitter handle.

While speaking at a meeting of the National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Information, he informed the members that the high-level probe body was constituted by Prime Minister Imran Khan and it will complete the investigation within 45 days.


He said that the committee will address the questions being raised about the Broadsheet, a UK-based firm hired by Pakistan to trace the assets of Pakistanis in 2000.

Broadsheet CEO Kaveh Mousavi in an interview with a YouTube channel had said that he was offered a bribe to drop probe against assets of Sharif family.
