Sharifs involved in corruption worth $32 mn: Malik
Islamabad: The Pakistan government has decided to send references against the Sharif brothers to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for alleged corruption to the tune of USD 32 million, Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said.
Malik showed some documents which he said revealed that Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif were involved in a scam.
“Each and every booklet speaks of their corruption. I want to ask you only one thing Shahbaz Sharif: Tell me where did you get this USD 32 million from? I will prove that this is the looted money of this poor nation,” The Express Tribune quoted Sharif, as saying.
Malik said that this was just the first episode and added he will later reveal the alleged corruption in further detail.
He asked the Pakistan Supreme Court to take a suo moto notice of the scam in which the precious money from the national exchequer was sent abroad.
He said that being an Interior Minister, he could have directed the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to register a case against those involved in money laundering scams and get them arrested, but he decided to refer the case to the NAB for an independent inquiry.
