Daily Mail’s revelations: Shahzad Akbar announces sending Shehbaz’s name to Inquiry Commission
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Accountability Mirza Shahzad Akbar announced on Sunday to send the matter of alleged money laundering allegations on Shehbaz Sharif in an investigative story by UK’s daily Mail to the Inquiry Commission.
Talking to Channel 92 after disclosure of new allegations published in daily Mail’s story, Akbar said things are now crystal clear and the government would take the matter to the IC.
He said more arrests would be expected in the latest money laundering allegations, adding Shehbaz Sharif’s son Suleman Shehbaz is the main culprit in the laundering of UK aid fund for earthquake victims.
Suleman Shehbaz was summoned to Pakistan several times in relation to the allegations, but he didn’t appear, Akbar further said.
Akbar requested the UK government to extradite the suspects or give access to them.
Federal Minister Ali Zaidi said in his statement that since years Nawaz and Shehbaz Sharif have been causing embarrassment to Pakistan internationally.
Zaidi alleged that the Sharif family sheltered criminals, pressured judiciary and tried to bribe them.
Punjab Information and Culture Minister Samsam Bokhari in his reaction said the real face of Khadem-e-Aala has now exposed after the UK paper published his new scandal.
Punjab Chief Minister’s spokesman Shehbaz Gull said a child is thief whether he steals money at home or outside. The previous rulers even didn’t spare charity’s money. “They are thugs and looters.”
Fiazul Hassan Chohan, another Punjab minister, was of the view that they are not doubtful about even one percent about the contents of story ran by the UK newspaper, saying their slogan of rendering public service is actually corruption. .
“The nation will see that they (PML-N leaders) will reach to their logical conclusion.”
Governor Sindh Imran Ismail and Federal Minister Sheerin Mazari also lambasted Shehbaz Sharif and family indirectly in their tweets.
مُجھے ہمیشہ تعجب رہا کہ وہ کون لوگ ہونگے جو خیرات کا پیسہ کھاتے ہیں اور اپنی اولادوں کو بھی کھلاتے ہیں۔
پھر پارسا بن کر ایمانداری کا راگ الا پتے ہیں۔ اپنی چوری کو جمہوریت کا نام دے کر ابو بچاو مُہم چلاتے ہیں۔ شرم آتی ہے انہیں پاکستانی کہنے میں۔ یہ صرف نام کے شریف ہیں۔
