Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s younger son, Hassan Nawaz, reached the Federal Judicial Academy — the office of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) in the Panama Papers case — around 10am Friday to record his statement.
The JIT is investigating the prime minister’s family’s global financial dealings in light of the Supreme Court’s April 20 judgment.
Strict security measures were in place in light of the premier’s son’s arrival at the venue. Hassan did not speak to the media as no one was allowed to come close to his motorcade.
The premier’s son brought with him some documents as well.
Sources said Hassan — a businessman — recently arrived in Pakistan from London after receiving summons from the JIT.
On Thursday, the premier’s elder son, Hussain Nawaz, appeared for the third time in front of the JIT.
After spending around six hours with the JIT, Hussain emerged out of the building and briefly spoke to the media.
“If the matters proceed in a fair manner then it’s fine otherwise we would present the issue before the Supreme Court and public,” said Hussain.
Hussain informed that he has been summoned again by the JIT for the next session. “I was made to wait for two hours,” he said, adding whoever the JIT summons has to appear before it.
He also claimed that no evidence will be found of any irregularity against him, his father or any sibling in the investigation.
The premier’s son said that he was interrogated in isolation, and was not allowed to be accompanied by a lawyer.
Moreover, sources informed that Hussain has again been summoned by the JIT on Saturday, June 3.
