ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday accused the joint investigation team (JIT) of being 'biased' and having affiliation with his political rival Imran Khan’s party.

The JIT had been set up by the Supreme Court to investigate allegations of money laundering against the ruling family in the Panama Papers case.

The ex-premier made the remarks as he recorded his statement in response to questions given to him in Avenfield apartment’s corruption reference.

The Accountability Court on Friday could not record the statements of Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar, as their counsel sought more time to prepare answers.

The court handed the questionnaire to the accused on May 16 consisting of 127 questions.

Judge Muhammad Bashir adjourned the proceedings till May 21 with observation that it was the last chance for the accused to record their statements.
