‘I am your daughter, trained by you, will neither cower down, nor yield to pressure’

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister’s daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday vowed  neither to “cower down nor yield to pressure” in her appearance before Panamagate Joint Investigation Team (JIT).

The JIT probing offshore properties of the Sharif family has summoned Maryam Nawaz to appear before it for the first time on July 5, Wednesday.

In a series of tweets today, 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.

“I told him that I am your daughter, trained by you, will neither cower down, nor yield to pressure & nothing will deter me from taking up the cudgels against transgression and injustice. Will appear before the JIT, follow the rule of law as you always have,” Maryam Nawaz wrote on Twitter.

Soon after this series of four tweets, Maryam wrote “See you tomorrow, Insha’Allah!”

The apex court appointed JIT had also summoned the premier’s sons, Hassan and Hussain Nawaz, to appear before it for further investigation on July 3 and 4 respectively.

The week is being deemed significant for the probing team as the six-member JIT is due to present its final report before the apex court on July 10.

Hussain Nawaz – the elder son of the prime minister – has appeared before the JIT for interrogation six times so far.
