PM's son-in-law appears before Panamagate JIT

The prime minister said instead of being held accountable he is the one who should be asking questions about the losses his family business suffered in 1970s.

"Whatever records the Joint Investigation Team asked for were given to them", he said.

He said the JIT's history is in front of everyone; it is distracting the public from the real issues.

PM's son-in-law accompanied by Asif Kirmani received warm welcome by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) workers on his arrival at Federal Judicial Academy.

Calling JIT a farce, he said, the country's time is being wasted in such proceedings.

He also called upon Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan to beware of conspiracies against the country and distance from such moves and tactics. He was performing Umrah and had arrived from Madinah on Friday to appear before the JIT.

Later talking to journalists, he asserted that after his testimony there was no room left for the Sharif family to escape the money laundering charges.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his two sons and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif have already recorded their statements before the JIT.

The JIT - formed on May 6 - was given 60 days to complete its probe into the Sharif family's global financial dealings and submit its report to the Supreme Court's special implementation bench overseeing its proceedings.

Sharif narrowly survived in three-two judgement in his favour in allegations of corruption in the Panama Papers case.
