The Pakistan Supreme Court on Thursday has ordered Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's sons Hassan and Hussain Nawaz to appear before the Joint Investigation Team in the Panama case verdict.

Among the global elite implicated were three of Sharif's four children - his daughter and presumptive political heir Maryam Nawaz, and his sons Hasan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz.
Sharif and his family have denied wrongdoing.
