ISLAMABAD: Hussain Nawaz, son of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, Sunday appeared before the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), constituted by the Supreme Court on Panama Papers case, to submit his statement.

On his arrival at the Federal Judicial Academy here, Hussain Nawaz in a brief chat with media said that he was appearing before the team along with his counsel on a short notice received on Saturday.

He said he had neither received any questionnaire so far nor the list of documents required by the JIT.

Meanwhile, talking to media Member National Assembly Daniyal Aziz said Hussain Nawaz who lives abroad, has appeared before the investigation team as the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had great respect for constitutional institutions and always believed in the supremacy of law.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family had not sought any kind of legal or technical exemption, rather showed respect to constitutional institutions.

Contrary to this, Daniyal said, PTI Chairman Imran Khan had been declared as an absconder by an anti-terrorism court since 2014 and he had not been willfully appearing before the court for last three years.

Besides, Imran Khan has been using derogatory language against constitutional institutions, he added.—APP
