Nawaz Sharif finding ‘absurd way to justify his money laundering’, says Imran Khan


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has lambasted Nawaz Sharif for his statement in the Accountability Court on Monday, saying that the former prime minister “now finds an absurd way to justify his money laundering.”

Earlier in the morning, while recording his statement in the Avenfield reference before the Accountability Court in Islamabad, Nawaz Sharif denied ownership of the London properties, and said that he had not been privy to any transactions for the acquisition of the properties.

The indignant Imran Khan took to twitter in response to Nawaz Sharif’s statement, wherein he wrote “Absolutely shameful! A thrice-elected Prime Minister today declared before NAB Court that the Avenfield Apartments belonged to his sons and he didn’t know where they got the money from! But as they are UK citizens the law of Pakistan does not apply to them according to Nawaz Sharif! Qatari letter also disowned.”

Imran Khan also wrote that “After wasting 2 years in Supreme Court & Joint Investigation Team (JIT) as well as taxpayer money, Nawaz Sharif now finds an absurd way to justify his money laundering. This means anyone, like Ishaq Dar, can park his kids abroad along with his looted wealth & simply say he doesn’t know where his kids money came from!”

Separately, while addressing media persons in Islamabad, the PTI Central Information Secretary Fawad Chaudhry also criticized Nawaz Sharif, saying that in the Accountability Court, Nawaz Sharif was given a questionnaire of 128 question out of which he vaguely answered 53 questions.

Fawad Chaudhary said that Nawaz Sharif kept the tradition of speaking blatant lies alive. He said that Nawaz Sharif’s answers are nothing but a chain of lies and deceit.

“Sharif family has miserably failed to prove the sources of their massive wealth and kept on misleading the nation and relevant institutions for their financial wrongdoings”, he said.
