The JIT had earlier stated that he is needed to reappear on Tuesday to meet the prerequisites of what provision of justice entails in the issue. Premier’s son was ordered to submit record and record statement during his appearance before the JIT today.

According to the notice issued, Hussain Nawaz was served the final notice on May 25 to make an appearance on May 28. However, he is not cooperating in the probe despite shortage of time.

Earlier on Monday, the apex court rejected Nawaz’s reservations and stated that no member of the JIT, constituted to probe Sharif family’s offshore assets, would be altered.

The special bench of the apex court comprising Justice Ejaz Afzal, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijazul Hassan heard the case on Monday.

The apex further directed Panamagate JIT to continue probe as per law and reiterated to take the much hyped case to its logical end. Expressing exasperation over objections, SC inquired whether Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif would appoint members for probing the Panama Leaks Case.
