ISLAMABAD: Expressing exasperation over Nawaz Sharif’s statement pertaining to money trail, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan opened verbal onslaught against former while terming the act as ‘shameful’.
Imran Khan has described former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s court statement about his alleged properties in London as “absolutely shameful.”
Imran Khan’s reaction came hours after Nawaz Sharif told an accountability court that he had no link with the Avenfield apartments which were owned by his sons.
Khan took to popular micro-blogging website Twitter and stated, “Absolutely shameful! A thrice-elected PM today declared before NAB Court that the Avenfield Apts 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 acc to NS! Qatari letter also disowned”.
In a second tweet, the PTI chief said that after wasting two years in Supreme Court and JIT as well as taxpayer money, Nawaz Sharif now finds an absurd way to justify his “money laundering.”
“After wasting 2 yrs in SC & JIT as well as taxpayer money, NS now finds an absurd way to justify his money laundering. This means anyone, like Dar, can park his kids abroad along with his looted wealth & simply say he doesn t know where his kids money came from,” he remarked.
“This means anyone, like Dar [Ishaq Dar], can park his kids abroad along with his looted wealth & simply say he doesn’t know where his kids money came from!” Khan added. NNI
