ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has slammed ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif after British newspaper published a report regarding his assets in London.
Imran Khan shared a post of Daily Mail on Twitter with following caption, “More on how the Pakistani nation s wealth was looted through money laundering by corrupt rulers and their families.”
The British media has revealed that the total value of the properties of Nawaz Sharif and his family is estimated at £32 million with London’s swankiest addresses.
According to the revelations, Avenfield House is where super-rich Nawaz Sharif, has lived when in London, since 1993. He shares this property with his two sons Hassan and Hussain, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar.
These apartments were constructed after four luxury flats were knocked together.
It is just the kind of property that Russian oligarchs possesses in recent years.
The report also claimed that Nawaz and his family used dirty money to purchase at least 21 UK properties on top of the Avenfield flats.
“The family has made huge profits from other sites which have not figured in court – such as the swankiest address of all, at One Hyde Park Place, which Nawaz Sharif’s son Hassan sold for £43 million. The properties are registered via a bewildering network of companies, trusts and bank accounts,” the newspaper exposed.
For the past few months, the Sharifs are facing a trial related to Avenfield flats and other references in an accountability court. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor has alleged the ex-PM of making the property with dirty money.
The Sharifs have denied any wrongdoing.
The verdict of Avenfield reference is likely to be announced this week. If found guilty, Sharifs’ assets will be seized while they will also face fines and jail sentences.
