Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s elder son Hussain Nawaz on Tuesday appeared for a sixth time before the joint investigation team (JIT) probing the Panamagate case.
Hussain arrived with a convoy amid tight security around Federal Judicial Academy where he will be interrogated vis-a-vis Panama Papers leaks. The premier’s son waved to his supporters who had gathered outside the establishment before facing the JIT.
Earlier, after appearing for the fifth time, the elder son of the premier had hoped that it would be his last appearance and his statements would suffice for the ongoing investigation.
“From the nature of questions, I can assume I will not be asked to appear before the JIT [again]. But, if I am summoned again, I will appear to fulfil [my] legal obligations,” Hussain had said.
The six-member JIT, headed by FIA Additional Director General Wajid Zia, is due to present its report before the top court on July 10. PM Nawaz, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, PM’s son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar have also recorded their statement before the JIT.
