Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday arrived at Federal Judicial Academy to appear before the joint investigation team probing Panamagate case.
The Punjab chief minister reached the secretariat amid tight security days after PM Nawaz Sharif and his nephews, Hassan and Hussain Nawaz, were also called in for interrogation.
Shehbaz was accompanied by Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan.
Earlier, the Punjab government clarified that Shehbaz has not been ‘summoned’ rather he has been called to assist the JIT on June 17 for his acquaintance with details of Hudabiya Paper Mill case. Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information and Culture Malik Muhammad Ahmad Khan denied media reports of JIT summoning Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif on June 17 and said the chief minister has been called up by the JIT. He said Shehbaz was called to provide details of the Hudabiya Paper Mill case to a six-member JIT, headed by Federal Investigation Agency’s Additional Director General Wajid Zia.
He said only accused or co-accused could be summoned whereas anybody with the knowledge that could help the investigation move forward can only be called before the JIT for assistance.
