ISLAMABAD: National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) President Saeed Ahmad has written a letter to Supreme Court registrar, and accused the Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) of insulting and threatening him contrary to the apex court’s order. He said he was made to wait for five hours before conducting three sessions of interviews. Saeed Ahmad added that he was asked to study a document and write his statement after the initial questioning. He said he was at the judicial Academy for 12 hours, and was feeling like a convict of a criminal case. The letter stated, “I waited for nearly 5 hours or so before I was called in for the first of the three interview sessions. After an initial questioning I was given a document to study and write a statement. I was called in again after more than two hours. I submitted my signed statement for records. I was also asked to read it out which I did. Then we broke for Iftar. I had to wait for another two hours when I was called in for the next session. This finished around 10:30 pm. “I understand that the court has ruled that all those who appear in front of JIT should be treated with respect. However, I felt during questioning I was insulted, threatened and subjected to undue pressure.”
