PTI Senator Sania Nishtar recorded her statement to the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) Combined Investigation Team in 190 million pounds corruption case (Al-Qadir Trust case) at the bureau’s Rawalpindi office on Thursday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
After recording her statement, the senator left the NAB office. Sania stayed at the office for over an hour.
Al-Qadir Trust case of 190 million pounds graft case basically centers round former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan, who had been arrested in this connection on May 9 this year.
As per the charges, Imran and other suspects in the case had allegedly adjusted Rs50 billion, 190 million pounds at the time, sent by Britain’s National Crime Agency (NCA) to the Pakistani government as part of the agreement with property tycoon Malik Riaz.
They are also accused of getting undue benefit from Riaz in the form of over 458 kanals of land at Sohawa for establishing Al-Qadir University.
During the PTI government, the NCA had seized assets worth 190 million pounds from a property tycoon in Britain.
The agency said the assets would be passed to the government of Pakistan. Subsequently, then prime minister Imran got an approval of the settlement with the UK’s agency from his cabinet on December 3, 2019, without disclosing details of the agreement.
PTI chairman and his aides, including his former special assistant Sania Nishtar, have denied any wrongdoing. The developer, too, has denied the charges.
