Panama Case: JIT to interrogate Sharif’s son Hussain

Lahore [Pakistan], May 30 :Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's elder son Hussain Nawaz will be interrogated by the joint investigation team probing the Panama Papers case for a second time on Tuesday.

The Supreme Court on Monday had turned down objections raised by Hussain Nawaz against two members of a team investigating the offshore financial assets of the ruling family.

"We are not going to remove any JIT member on mere conjecture unless something concrete comes up because the prime minister is the one being investigated," Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, who heads the three-judge implementation bench of the Supreme Court, observed, the Dawn and the Express Tribune has reported.

Hussain had earlier objected to the inclusion of two members - Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan's Bilal Rasool and State Bank of Pakistan's Amer Aziz - accusing them of being close to the PML-N's political rivals.

The JIT decided to summon Hussain Nawaz to inquire about Sharif Family's assets in London and Qatar..
