NAB summons PTI’s Usman Dar on Tuesday
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Sunday summoned Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Usman Dar on Tuesday to submit evidence in case against Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif.
In a letter sent to the PTI leader, the anti-graft watchdog asked Usman Dar to appear in person and provide evidence related to corruption allegations against the foreign minister.
On March 7, NAB Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal had directed the authorities to verify complaints registered against Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, alleging him of money laundering.
In January, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Usman Dar had presented a letter to NAB requesting to probe alleged financial embezzlement by Khawaja Asif.
It was added that the foreign minister is part of the ‘gang’ involved in covering up money laundering and ‘corruption’ done by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
The letter stated that Dar possesses irrefutable evidence against Asif, which includes foreign bank account details showing transactions worth millions. Asif used assets abroad for money laundering, the letter states.
