Hussain Nawaz left Islamabad for Qatar
07 July, 2017
RAWALPINDI: Hussain Nawaz, the elder son of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, left Islamabad for the Qatari capital on Thursday, with many analysts suggesting he had gone to Doha in order to convince Qatar’s former premier Prince Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani to appear before the joint investigating team (JIT) probing allegations of money laundering against the Sharif family.
According to sources, Mr Nawaz left for Doha aboard the Qatar Airways flight QR-615 at about 9.55am. A late-night report said that Mr Nawaz stayed in Doha for five hours and met some important people there. Later, he flew to London.
In London, he will meet former chairman of the Ehtesab Bureau, Saifur Rehman, who has also been in the UK capital these days.
Leaders of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz have been claiming that investigations into the Panama Papers case would remain incomplete without recording of a statement to be made by the Qatari prince.
