ISLAMABAD:- A plea seeking replacement of Federal Investigation Agency Additional Director General Wajid Zia as head of Panama joint investigation team was submitted in the Supreme Court. According to the petition, the plaintiff said that Wajid Zia didn’t go to Qatar to record the prince’s statement in Panama Papers case despite travel allowances. He claimed the JIT chief had no interest in accountability. It further demanded appointment of that leader who could bring back the looted money.–INP
