ISLAMABAD: The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) formed to probe the Panama Papers evidence has decided to summon Qatari Prince again.
The decision was taken during the marathon 13-hour meeting of the JIT in Islamabad.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's son Hussain Nawaz was questioned on Wednesday for the second time in three days by the JIT that is probing his family s business dealings abroad in the high-profile Panama Papers case.
It was second time since Sunday that Hussain appeared before the JIT where he spent about five and a half hour and answered the questions of the team.
While talking to the media before leaving the JIT headquarters, Hussain Nawaz warned to move court against any official of the investigation team who resorts to unlawful attitude. He further said that he would reappear before the JIT whenever he is asked to.
Nawaz said that he answered all the questions raised by the probe team.
Reportedly, legal counsel of premier's son was not allowed to accompany him during the interrogation. President of National Bank of Pakistan (NBP), Saeed Ahmed also recorded his statement to the JIT. 
Hussain Nawaz, son of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, has been asked to appear before a joint investigation team (JIT) probing the money trail of flats owned by the ruling family in UK.
This will be Hussain Nawaz's third straight appearance before the JIT in less than seven days.
In addition, Prime Minister Sharif's second son Hasan Nawaz has also been summoned on Friday.
On Sunday, Hussain Nawaz was grilled for three hours by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) comprising financial experts, investigators and representatives from intelligence agencies.
The Sharif family says that flats were originally purchased by a Qatar-based firm and later transferred to Hussain.
The JIT has been given 60 days by the Supreme Court to decide the matter. If proven guilty, Prime Minister Sharif can be declared ineligible from politics forever. 
Joint Investigation Team (JIT) has ordered Hussain Nawaz and Hassan Nawaz, sons of Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif to appear before the probe committee on Thursday over Panama Leaks case.
Sources privy to Federal Judicial Academy have reported that Nawaz would hand over certain documents to the probe committee tomorrow.
Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) had ordered formation of a JIT to probe premier's and his family's assets in Panama Leaks verdict that was delivered in April.
A committee, led by an official of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) was headquartered in Federal Judicial Academy following the orders of filing a report within two months.
Hussain Nawaz had appeared before the JIT consecutively on May 29 and May 30. While talking to the media on Tuesday before departing from the academy, Nawaz claimed that the no unlawful activity would be proved against his father or the family.
PM Nawaz had denied allegations of corruption last year in May on the floor of the House in his speech.
International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) had studied a leak of documents belonging to a law firm, Mossack Fonseca and published a detailed account of former and incumbent leaders of the world who owned offshore companies.
Icelandic leader tendered his resignation over the allegations of using shell entities to stash wealth.
In Pakistan, opposition parties alleged the premier of corruption and demanded off him to step down. However, protesting opposition in the National Assembly called off the boycott and accepted premier's offer to have a parliamentary committee define joint Terms of References (TOR) for probe in the apex court.
The committee members failed to strike a consensus over joint ToRs and the top court announced in October 2016 to take up the case on petitions filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Awami Muslim League (AML) and Jamaat-e-Islami (JI).
A verdict was reserved in February 2017 and was released on April 20. The apex court ordered formation of a JIT within seven days and filing of its report within two months. - NNI
