It is highly likely that the members would soon join their team in a bid to record the statement of Maryam Nawaz, daughter of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who would be making her maiden appearance before the team today (Wednesday) at 11 A.M.

A day before the much-awaited appearance, Maryam Nawaz took to microblogging time and tweeted: See you tomorrow, Insha’Allah !

In a series of loaded tweets, Maryam Nawaz said that her father has seen and been through “most testing times, in the 30+ years of his political career acing out his rivals” yet as an affectionate and protective father, she saw his eyes filled with concern and apprehensions over his daughter’s appearance before JIT.

The prime minister’s cousin Tariq Shafi faced the team twice. The Supreme Court of Pakistan had set a deadline of July 10 for the team to wind up its probe.
