LAHORE: The joint investigation team (JIT) probing the offshore holdings of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his children has summoned his younger brother, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, to appear before it on June 17 (Saturday).

Mr Shahbaz will appear before the six-member JIT, headed by Federal Inves­tiga­tion Agency’s Addi­tional Director Wajid Zia, two days after the prime minister’s scheduled appearance.

Mr Shahbaz has been asked to bring along with him relevant record/documents/material related to the Panama Papers case.

The JIT’s summons to Mr Shahbaz was issued on the day when his close aide and Punjab Law Minister Rana Sana­ullah said that the joint inve­stigation team should better call Mr Shahbaz if it wanted to do a Ph.D. and write a thesis on the Sharif family. “The JIT should invite CM Shahbaz as he will provide every detail it is seeking,” he said.

Talking to reporters here, the minister further said the chief minister would not mind “long interrogation sessions”.“The JIT should also disclose who leaked Hussain Nawaz’s picture and which institution he belonged to and as to why it did not register an FIR against him,” he asked. “We have not called PML-N workers to assemble on the arrival of the prime minister before the JIT on Thursday,” Mr Sanaullah said.
