Islamabad: Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik has turned all cannons towards Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)’s chief Nawaz Sharif, putting on him the charges of money laundering and corruption.
“Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shehbaz Sharif hold money in ten different Swiss banks.” Malik told media in a press conference here on Saturday.
He said ‘hang me’ if any of these allegations are proved to be wrong.
When asked that why is he bringing up these allegations at this time, rehman Malik replied that during Benazir’s second term General Amjad of National Accountability Bureau asked for my assistance against Sharif brothers but Benzair refused to do so.
He further said that Shehbaz Sharif was declared defaulter by High Court of Queen’s bench London. Nawaz Sharif was also the defaulter of 6 billion rupees of different banks. ‘They are not honest therefore cannot be in politics,’ Malik added.
‘Fearing the investigations Nawaz Sharif signed first NRO with Farooq Laghari and second NRO then with Musharaf,’ said Rehman Malik.
When asked will you be taking this matter in court he replied ‘I can investigate this matter through Federal Investigation Agency but I am sending it to NAB and I will take the matter to parliament and courts as well.’
