ISLAMABAD, July 5 (APP): Maryam Nawaz, daughter of Prime
Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, on Wednesday said Joint
Investigation Team (JIT) was still trying to find allegations
against the Sharif family.
Speaking to media outside the Judicial Academy after appearing
before the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) here, she said if
conspiracies will be hatched against Nawaz Sharif, he will return
with more force.
Those who are hatching conspiracies should keep in mind that
Nawaz Sharif has support of the people, she added.
In a message to those hatching conspiracies, Maryam said,
“Stop Nawaz Sharif, otherwise he will end terrorism. Stop Nawaz
Sharif or he will end loadshedding and complete CPEC, stop Nawaz
Sharif or he will bring economic prosperity to the country.”
She said Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif was protector of
constitution and law.
This was the first Joint Investigation Team (JIT) of the world
which was still trying to find allegations, she added.
“We are facing accountability for the fifth time. Our three
generations offered themselves for accountability.”
Maryam pointed that this was not the first “leaks” in which
her name was being used.
Earlier, she said, her name was used in the DawnLeaks to put
pressure on her father Nawaz Sharif.
She said the allegations were merely swirling around private
businesses of Sharif family and were related to the decades of 60s,
70s and 80s.
“We did not owe a single penny of the public money.”
She said Sharif family could be asked about use of public
money but it was not fair to ask about their private businesses.
Those who filed cases against Sharif family, they themselves
have offshore companies and took stay order in cases of misuse of
public money, she told.
She said she answered all questions of the JIT, adding she

family could also have find excuses and avoided JIT by making
excuses on medical grounds and due to pain in the back.
She thanked party workers and family members for supporting
her at this moment and sending her messages of support and prayers.
Maryam Nawaz said the petitioner in Panama case could not prove any of his allegations before the Supreme Court .
She asked why questions were not asked from those who did not
have any source of income.
Maryam Nawaz, who responded to questions of JIT during a two
hour session, said, “Those who considered her as weakness of her
father, should know that she will be strength of her father.”
“I am daughter of the person who taught me how to be upright.
Be afraid of the day, when Nawaz Sharif will go before the public
and will tell his side of the story.”
She said if conspiracies continued, Nawaz Sharif would become
prime minister for the fourth, fifth and then the sixth time.
Nawaz Sharif had already remained prime minister of the country
for two times and chief minister for three times in the past, she
