PPP unveils ‘documentary proof’ of money laundering by Sharifs

LAHORE: Former interior minister Rehman Malik on Monday alleged that the Sharif brothers were involved in money laundering of millions of dollars.

Malik showed documents in support of his claim during a press conference at a local hotel on Monday. He alleged that the PML-N chief had transferred money to Saudi Arabia and his aide former federal minister Ishaq Dar had already acknowledged in his affidavit that he had laundered money on behalf of the Sharif brothers. He further claimed that Ishaq Dar had opened family accounts in the name of UK-based Qazi Masood family by which Sharif brothers laundered billions of rupees to other countries, particularly Saudi Arabia.

He said that the Sharif brothers have used their relative Ishaq Dar, his wife’s nephew Mosa Ghani, a Middle East-based woman named Syeda Sadiqa Mehmooda Mohsin and the British-based Pakistani Qazi Masood and his family in this money laundering scam. According to Malik, Sharifs initially sent billions of dollars outside the country and then that amount reverted in the form of debt to Pakistan. Malik alleged that both the Sharif brothers got accounts opened in the names of various persons and then used them for money laundering. – DailyTimes
