Govt exposes Sharif family’s network of corruption, money laundering
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The government has exposed the Sharif family’s network of corruption and money laundering.
Addressing a press conference along with Murad Saeed on Thursday, Special Adviser to Prime Minister on Accountability Shahzad Akbar said that Shehbaz Sharif’s corruption of a penny in billions of rupees.
He said that the Sharif family continued to run paper companies from CM Secretariat. “GNC’s cash boys Mansoor Anwar and Shoaib Qamar played the main role. Both of them are under arrest and have given the statements,” he said.
Shahzad Akbar said that the Sharif family’s network included Mehr Nisar Gill and Tahir Naqvi.
He said that the settlement of Rs38 billion has been reached with the Malik Riaz family. “It is the first time that the money has returned from abroad. Our objective is to bring back the looted money and it is being fulfilled,” he said.
He requested the NAB to try these cases on emergency basis. “We are not fond of keeping anyone in jail if they return our money. TT was neither illegal in the past nor it is illegal now. In the GNC case, the issue is not TT, but the fake and paper one,” he said.
Shahzad Akbar also put 18 questions to Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif. “Were Nisar Gill and Ali Mehar not director of the political affairs? Were both not owners of the temporary companies? Had Nisar Gill not written the designation of the adviser to CM in his bank form? Did Nisar Gill not visit several countries with Suleman Shehbaz? Is Shehbaz Sharif going to file a defamation suit against me?” he questioned.
However, SAPM on Accountability Shahzad Akbar was reluctant in mentioning the name of Malik Riaz. On repeated questions put by journalists, he mentioned the name of Malik Raiz once.
He said that the British government had transferred 190 million pounds.
