Pakistan wanted account in Kuwait in PM`s name: WikiLeaks

A cable said Pak govt had requested opening of accounts in PM`s name in other countries as well.



Islamabad: The present Pakistan government requested the opening of a bank account in Kuwait in the name of the prime minister for receiving donations for internally displaced people, says a US diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks.

According to the cable sent in June 2009, Rashid Al-Hajri, counsellor of international affairs in Kuwait`s Foreign Ministry, told a US official that the Pakistan embassy requested a bank account in the name of the prime minister to pool donations for displaced people, Geo News reported.

Al-Hijri expressed concern over possible corruption and asked why an account had to be opened in the name of the prime minister rather than in the name of the government or the embassy in Kuwait.

The cable also said the government had requested the opening of accounts in the name of the prime minister in other countries as well.
