Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif arrived at the Federal Judicial Academy (FJA) on Saturday to present himself to the joint investigation team (JIT) probing allegations of money laundering against the Sharif family.

He is the fourth member of the Sharif family to present himself to the JIT.

The prime minister's brother was accompanied by his son, Hamza Shahbaz, Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on his way to the JIT secretariat, according to DawnNews.

Shahbaz Sharif had arrived in Islamabad on Friday to discuss matters with his lawyers prior to this appearance before the JIT.

According to sources privy to the information, the Punjab CM will face the JIT as a witness. They further said the JIT was likely to ask Shahbaz questions related to the establishment of the Gulf Steel Mills by his family in the UAE and its subsequent sale.

Since Shahbaz Sharif is one of the directors of Hudaibya Paper Mills, the JIT may also cross-check with him the information it has so far gathered regarding the Hudaibya reference as well as old litigation between the Paper Mills and Al-Tawfeeq Investment Co, the sources further said.
