ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Former National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman Lieutenant General (r) Syed Muhammad Amjad has on Thursday appeared before the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), formed to probe Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family in Panama Leaks case.

The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) had directed the former National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman to provide information and documents regarding Hudabiya Papers Mills.

The six-man panel has also summoned both sons of the prime minister for further interrogation. Hassan Nawaz will appear before the team on July 3, while Hussain Nawaz is due to appear on July 4. Furthermore, the JIT also summoned Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s relative Tariq Shafi on 2nd July.

The JIT formed by Supreme Court to probe money trail of the Sharif family under Panama case verdict, has also summoned Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz on July 5 to record her statement.

On April 20, the five-member Supreme Court bench gave its verdict in the case with the judgment split 3-2 in favour of a further probe against the premier’s family wealth. The other two judges had ruled that sufficient evidence was available for the prime minister to be de-seated.

The JIT – formed on May 6 – was given 60 days to complete its probe into the Sharif family’s international financial dealings and submit its report to the Supreme Court’s special implementation bench overseeing its proceedings.
