Shahzad says you can’t escape; Shehbaz feels sorry for NAB-Niazi

Special Assistant to the PM on Accountability Shahzad Akbar on Wednesday said there had been an exponential rise in the assets owned by the family of PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif who left for London with an excuse of his brother’s health.

He said the PML-N president was misleading the people through strange statements. It is impossible for Shehbaz to escape given the available evidence, the prime minister’s adviser asserted.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, Shahzad said money had been transferred to the account of any employee of Ramzan Sugar Mills while another account was opened in the name of Iqrar Hussain of Chiniot Power.

Billions of rupees were transferred to the accounts of companies established in the name of employees, he alleged.

If Shehbaz has nothing to do with the affairs of his sons then why their friends were used as frontmen, Shahzad asked.

Shahbaz asked Shehbaz how Rs450 million were transferred to the account of a worker and said he helped Maqsood fled to Dubai after NAB started investigation.

Earlier in the day, Shehbaz, in a series of tweets, said he felt sorry for NAB-Niazi duo for always running away from court of law and employing old tactics of propaganda on media.

It was aimed at hiding their own gross incompetence and corrupt practices in sugar, wheat, medicines and Peshawar BRT scams, he added. “No propaganda can cover up your poor governance and incompetence.”

He said Imran had previously accused him of offering him Rs.10 billion as bribe to remain silent in the Panama case and using Javed Sadiq as frontman.

“Then it was said I siphoned off money from Multan Metro, a baseless charge rejected by Chinese government. Even to this day, he has not presented a single piece of evidence in court,” said Shehbaz.
