PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif said Wednesday that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) could not prove even a single penny of corruption against him and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in response to a UK court’s decision to unfreeze his and his family’s bank accounts.
Shehbaz Sharif stated at a news conference in Lahore that the ruling PTI‘s ministers have been accusing him and his family of corruption worth billions of rupees but have been unable to establish any wrongdoing.
The NCA had conducted an investigation into his financial transactions over the past 20 years and found no evidence of money laundering or criminal activity against him, according to the PML-N leader, adding that the UK agency had finally asked the court to end their investigations against him, which the UK court had approved.
“Will a UK court let us off the hook if we committed corruption?” he wondered.
The PML-N leader slammed the prime minister, saying, “The NAB-Nazi connection is a set match, and the FIA is acting on the government’s orders.”
Shehbaz said he filed a slander suit against the Daily Mail and demanded proof against him. The Daily Mail, on the other hand, has failed to provide proof in the case. Meetings with imprisoned persons were organised with the reporter, David Rose, in order to manufacture a false narrative.
Those who claim to be Sadiq and Ameen have spent millions of rupees to discredit him.
“The PTI-led government’s main objective is to isolate the Sharif family,” the PML-N president stated, adding that the authorities have merely squandered the nation’s time.
For more over three years, Prime Minister Imran Khan and his followers have been making false charges against him and his family. “Has there been any uncertainty since the UK court’s verdict?” he inquired.
Shahbaz and his family’s bank accounts have been unfrozen by a UK court.
A UK court had previously ordered the unfreezing of PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif’s and his family’s bank accounts on September 27 due to a lack of proof of corruption and money laundering.
On Monday, the National Crime Agency (NCA) in the United Kingdom unfroze the bank accounts of former Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif and his son, Suleman Sharif.
The NCA has completed a 17-month investigation into Shahbaz Sharif’s financial dealings over the previous 20 years. It contained no proof of money laundering or criminal activity by the PML-N president or his family.
The NCA had presented a bank account investigation report to the Westminster court, stating that Shahbaz and his son were not implicated in money laundering operations in Pakistan, Dubai, or the United Kingdom.
When the NCA first began investigating the matter, it asked the UK court for an extension, claiming that it needed more time to finish the investigation into Shahbaz in various nations.
