ISLAMABAD: After questioning the premier’s elder son, Hussain Nawaz, twice in the last three days, the Panama case Joint Investigation Team (JIT) has now summoned Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s younger son Hassan, who will appear before the probe team today.
Sources revealed that the premiers younger son, a businessman based in London, reached Pakistan Tuesday night after being directed to appear before the JIT on Wednesday.
The JIT is investigating the prime minister’s familyâ€™s global financial dealings in light of the Supreme Court’s April 20 judgment.
After his questioning by the JIT on Tuesday, Hussain spoke to media, saying “I was fasting and responded to all the questions asked.â€
He claimed that he has provided all the documents the JIT asked for, adding that he respects the law.
“I can say with conviction that nothing wrong would be proved against me, my father or any sibling,” he claimed.
When asked about the two JIT members whose impartiality Hussain had questioned through a petition in the Supreme Court â€” which was rejected by the judges â€” the premierâ€™s son stated that the matter should be laid to rest.
â€œIf I have any objections [against the JIT] in future, Iâ€™ll appeal to the court,â€ he stated.
