LONDON (92 News) – David Rose – British investigative journalist who wrote the article claiming PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif of laundering quake victims’ aid money and embezzling tens of millions of pounds of public money to Britain – has said that the Department for International Development (DFID) “rebuttal” of his story about Shahbaz Sharif is nothing of the kind.

The British took his twitter after United Kingdom’s DFID discredited an article published by “Daily Mail” and said, “The DIFD’s rebuttal merely repeats their statement quoted in the article, and claims the piece contains no evidence about the earthquake fund. Read it. It does. Poor show. More wasted cash!”

“This DFID “rebuttal” of my story about Shahbaz Sharif is nothing of the kind. It merely repeats their statement quoted in the article, and claims the piece contains no evidence about the earthquake fund. Read it. It does. Poor show. More wasted cash!,” Davis Rose tweeted.

Earlier, in a statement issued by the DFID clearly stated that the construction of school from the aid had been completed and an audit had also been conducted in this regard.

It further stated that the British tabloid failed to provide evidence regarding its news report, adding that the tax payer’s money had been protected from any fraud.

“The UK taxpayer got exactly what it paid for and helped the vulnerable victims of a devastating earthquake. We are confident our robust systems protected UK taxpayers from fraud.”

Earlier, former Punjab chief minister and PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif allegedly laundered Britain’s aid worth millions of pounds reserved for the rehabilitation of earthquake victims, claims UK’s newspaper in its article.

Up to £500million of UK foreign aid has been poured into his province of Punjab, but, investigators claim, his family was laundering some of the money in Britain, said The Mail on Sunday (daily Mail) in its investigative report.

Some of the amount was stolen and was transferred to Birmingham and then was further transferred to the bank accounts of Shehbaz’s family in a suspicious way.

The UK government has decided to investigate the aid amount.
