NATHIA GALI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan on Friday said that nobody had ever imagined that ‘Sharif family’ would be held accountable and that he sees the premier in Adiala Jail in the near future.
Khan addressed a press conference in Nathia Gali and criticised the ruling political party for its alleged corruption and reiterated his accusation of being offered Rs 10 million bribe by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to not push for probe of Panama Leaks against premier’s family.
In his briefing to the media, Khan branded the stand of the opposition against PML-N a ‘decisive battle’. He rhetorically asked if the ‘thieves’ were to hold themselves accountable.
Corruption mafia relies upon bribes and threats to get what they want, he said adding that money worth Rs 10 billion is laundered out of Pakistani accounts every year.
‘Sharif family’ purchased palaces abroad, registered under children’s names after robbing Pakistan off its funds, he accused. Khan said that the family being probed for corruption asks what their crime is. Corruption and money laundering is your crime, he said.
PTI Chief said that Finance Minister Ishaq Dar laid it bare that Saeed Ahmed helped Nawaz Sharif launder the money.
Nobody had ever imagined that the family of PM Nawaz would be held accountable and probe, Khan said adding that Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif dons a ‘Panama hat’ and a ‘mafia suit’ and appears before the camera.
Khan said that he had been waiting for a long time for this and ‘it is going to be a fantastic match’.
PTI Chairman accused CM Shahbaz of using the law to his benefit. Khan said that he is waiting for Shehbaz to take him to court in the suit as he would expose all the alleged wrongdoings he has committed. NNI
