"Musharraf launched fourth probe against us during his regime but could not find any evidence," he said.  

"These so-called accountabilities cost us million of rupees and thousands of poor labourers lost their jobs," he said.

"Neither me nor my brother have done any corruption although we have completed projects worth billions of rupees in this country," Shahbaz said.  

Earlier, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif appeared before Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT).

The Chief Minister reached Judicial Academy in Islamabad without official protocol. Senior leadership of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) however, accompany him.  

The JIT questioned him regarding Huddaibiya Paper Mills and queries related to Panama Leaks, Sharif family's London flats and money trail for that property. 

Large number of PML-N supporters were present outside the academy. 

Capital police had tightened the security of Judicial Complex.  

The traffic police blocked roads surrounding the academy for normal traffic as citizens have been asked to use alternative routes.

Shehbaz Sharif met Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar in Punjab House before the hearing and discussed different aspect regarding the Panama Leaks case. 

On June 15th, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif appeared before the joint investigation team (JIT) probing his family’s offshore business dealings.

He is the first sitting prime minister to appear before any investigating agency of the country.

In the past, prime ministers Yousuf Raza Gilani and Raja Pervaiz Ashraf had been summoned for presenting their stances, but both of them were called by a judicial forum (Supreme Court) and not by any investigation body.

Even Raja, who was a respondent in a corruption case involving rental power projects, never personally appeared before NAB investigators while in office.

Law enforcement agencies have taken stringent security measures for PM Sharif’s appearance before the JIT. As many as 2,500 security personnel of Rangers, police, Frontier Constabulary (FC), traffic police and special branch will be deployed for providing him security cover.

The JIT had issued summons to Premier Nawaz on June 8, asking him to appear at the Federal Judicial Academy on June 15 and bring along relevant record of Panama Papers case.

The probe team, headed by FIA Additional DG Wajid Zia, will quiz the prime minister over corruption and money laundering allegations against his family.
