ISLAMABAD – The Panama case JIT has revealed that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif refused to recognize his own uncle (Khaloo) during the interview, and identified him after two and half hours of questioning.
Nawaz Sharif was summoned by the Panama JIT to probe the Sharif family assets on orders of the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
As per details, PM Nawaz remained reluctant in answering the questions regarding the Gulf Steel Mills, and kept on saying “neither does he know Mr. Muhammad Hussain nor his partnership in Gulf Steel Mills.” On the contrary, he admitted after some time that Mr. Hussain is his own uncle.
The report states: “Mian Nawaz Sharif was visibly evasive about most of the questions related to Gulf Steel Mills. Despite repeated questions, he stated that neither does he know Mr. Muhammad Hussain nor his partnership in Gulf Steel Mills, which is unlikely. After two and half hours of the interview, he admitted only to the extent of knowing Mr. Muhammad Hussain, as his uncle (Khaloo).”
