ISLAMABAD, MAY 15, (DNA) –  Joint Investigation Team (JIT), formed by Supreme Court (SC) to probe much-hyped Panama Leaks case, has sped up the procedure and decided to seek record of Sharif family’s tax returns from Federal Board of Revenue (FBR).

Sources told the six-member team headed by Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) Additional Director-General Wajid Zia is considering to write a letter to FBR asking them to provide complete information of Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif and his sons’ financial statements from 1985 to 2016.

Earlier, JIT was informed by Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) that PM Nawaz has no property abroad but he took Rs 20 crore from Hussain Nawaz in 2015 in the form of dollars and euros.

The cost of the premier’s Jati Umra building was shown as Rs 40 lac in the documents while he had declared as many as seven bank accounts under his name.
