Deposed premier Nawaz Sharif’s son, Hussain Nawaz, has challenged the incumbent government to show proof of corruption or illegality committed by the Sharif family before the UK or any other government in the world.
Hussain said that the UK arbitration court’s judgment, in the case Broadsheet LLC vs the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and National Accountability Bureau, has given a “clean chit” to the Sharif family.
Hussain said the judgment, authored by Sir Anthony Evan, stated that the London asset recovery firm hired Matrix Research Limited to investigate assets of Nawaz and eight members of the Sharif family for a year soon after NAB signed a contract with Broadsheet LLC but found nothing illegal.
The former premier’s son said foreign governments don’t believe in the “lies” told on Pakistani media about Nawaz and his family.
On the other hand, he claimed Prime Minister Imran Khan’s ministers and friends are deep down in real corruption for which proof is available, adding that there was no accountability for them. Hussain gave the example of Faisal Vawda owning 19 undeclared properties in London.
He explained that Mark Bezant and Yasir Dajani of the FTI Consulting were appointed by the anti-graft watchdog to comment on the SF forensic report on the Sharif family and matters arising out of the report of the JIT, adding that Bezant’s evidence was confined to the identification and valuation of relevant assets owned by the Sharif family.
