Hassan Nawaz arrives to face JIT for third time

On Monday, 3rd July 2017, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s son, Hassan Nawaz, arrived at the Federal Judicial Academy (FJA) in order to face the six-member joint investigation team (JIT) which is probing money laundering allegations against the Sharif family.

This will be the third time Hassan Nawaz’s third appearance before the probe team. JIT has began the last round of interrogations, on Sunday, 2nd July 2017, it examined the prime minister’s cousin Tariq Shafi.

On 10th July 2017, the JIT is scheduled to submit its final report to the Supreme Court. Other children of the Prime Minister Hussain Nawaz and Maryam Nawaz have been scheduled to appear before the JIT on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

Some TV reports suggest that Finance Minister Ishaq Dar will also appear before the JIT today (Monday).

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister Asif Kirmani while speaking to reporters outside the FJA, lashed out at the JIT over what he alleged was a “u-turn” in the probe team’s investigation. Mr Kirmani said that the JIT report will be “incomplete” if it will not include the statement of Qatari prince Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jaber Al Thani.

Kirmani claimed that after receiving the Qatari royal’s letter, the JIT had reportedly presented three choices to the prince in order to record his statement: he can visit Pakistan, the JIT can visit him in Qatar or he can be interviewed over Skype.

Mr Kirmani claimed that the Qatari prince had invited the JIT to visit him, “but no progress has been made so far regarding that. Their (JIT’s) report will remain incomplete until the Qatari prince’s statement is a part of it” Kirmani further added, alleging that the JIT has taken a “u-turn from its original mandate.

He claimed that the JIT was originally assigned the task to investigate about the Sharif family-owned London flats, and since the Qatari letter concerning those apartments has already been provided to the court, the JIT must therefore visit Qatar to record the prince’s statement.

Addressing JIT members directly he said: “You must go to Qatar or this nation and PML-N workers… will have serious reservations in accepting this report.”
