Hassan was accompanied by the prime minister’s special secretary Asif Kirmani.
Speaking to the media after Hassan went inside, Kirmani, accompanied by state minister Tariq Fazal Chaudhry, lamented the treatment being meted out to the prime minister’s family.
He urged the Supreme Court to take notice of the leaking of Hussain Nawaz’s picture, as well as the ‘ambulance scandal’ — the mysterious calling of an ambulance on the first day of Hussain’s appearance before the JIT. He alleged that the ambulance was called in unnecessarily in a character assassination attempt against the premier’s elder son, adding that the entire time Hussain was inside, his family was worried sick.
Panama JIT questions Hassan Nawaz for seven hours
Hassan — a London-based businessman — earlier appeared before the JIT on June 2 and was questioned by the probe team for around seven hours.
He did not speak to the media after his questioning.
