Money Laundering: UK court declares Shehbaz Sharif, son

United Kingdom’s (UK) West Minister Court Monday acquitted Pakistani politician Mian Shehbaz Sharif and his son Salman in a money laundering case.

According to the 24News HD TV Channel, the UK court also restored the frozen accounts of Shehbaz Sharif and Salman Shehbaz in the same case.

The National Crime Agency of the UK made 20 months-long investigations but couldn’t find any evidence of money laundering or any other criminal activity.

The agency submitted its final report in the Westminster Court and gave a clean chit to the Sharif family members.

On the agency’s investigative report, the court declared Shehbaz Sharif and his son Salman Shehbaz "Not Guilty" in the money laundering case and restored their bank accounts.

The UK agency held investigations on a request from Pakistan against Shehbaz Sharif and his family. Bank accounts of Shehbaz Sharif and Salman Shehbaz were frozen by the British agency in December 2019.
