Pamana JIT will find no evidence Sharif family: Hussain Nawaz

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister’s elder son Hussain Nawaz on Tuesday after his appearance before the Joint Investigation Team said that no evidence will be found against him and his family simply because none exists.
“I maintain what I had said from day one that they will find no evidence against me and family simply because it doesn’t exist. There is no evidence against corruption, misuse of office, money laundering against the Sharifs,” he said after spending five-and-a-half hours before the JIT.
Talking to media after appearing for the sixth time before the JIT, Hussain said that his family has decided to fully cooperate with the team.
“Only two summons would have been enough for the kind of questions that were put up…but in respect of the decision of the Supreme Court, we have been appearing before the team,” he said.
Earlier, Hussain reached the Federal Judicial Academy at 11am to appear once more before the JIT. He was accompanied by Prime Minister’s Political Secretary Asif Kirmani and Islamabad Mayor Sheikh Ansar Aziz.
Talking to the media, Kirmani reiterated the importance of recording the Qatari prince’s statement by the JIT in its final report.
He also criticised the JIT for not sending the Qatari prince a questionnaire before his recording. “Is this not against justice,” he asked.
They are not sharing the complete facts with our main defence, he claimed, saying the JIT report will have no value without the Qatari prince’s statement.
When asked to respond to reports that a JIT member will be proceeding to Doha on July 6 to record the prince’s statement, he said “we will cross that bridge when we reach it”.
Referring to Imran Khan’s tweet on Monday showing ruling party members celebrating the April 20 judgment, he said Imran had created an impression that the Supreme Court would disqualify the premier but the bench formed a JIT instead. “This is why the people celebrated,” he explained.
Security measures around the Federal Judicial Academy, where the JIT is based, were heightened in light of Hussain’s appearance.
The road from I-8 Interchange to the academy in Sector H-8 has also been closed of for traffic to keep a route clear for the premier’s son. Islamabad Traffic Police also issued an alternative route plan for commuters.
A number of supporters of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz had amassed at the academy ahead of Hussain’s visit.
This will be the sixth time the premier’s elder son has been summoned by the JIT probing the Sharif family’s assets in light of the Supreme Court’s April 20 judgment.
