HEADLINE ISLAMABAD

ISLAMABADMinister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain say people have given a clear mandate to PTI government to arrest the corrupt people.

He said this while addressing a joint news conference with Senator Shibli Faraz and Minister of State for Revenue Muhammad Hammad Azhar in Islamabad today (Tuesday).

The Minister said both families were running the world’s largest money laundering network and they termed this as charter of democracy. He said democracy is in “danger” if they were asked about their looted money.  

The Minister said all institutions are working independently in PTI government.

He said Nawaz Sharif could not answer simple question of NAB court about money trail of his assets.

He said both Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardar established fake companies to legalize kickbacks obtained in different projects in the country.

Fawad Chaudhry said no one is being targeted and all the cases against Asif Ali Zardari were established in 2015.

To a question, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain informed that Special Investigation Unit will initiate proceedings from tomorrow regarding confiscation of Nawaz Sharif’s Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metal Company.

Speaking on the occasion, Minister of State for Revenue Muhammad Hammad Azhar said PML (N) is misleading people about the facts.

He said Nawaz Sharif received eighty eight percent profit and share of the companies.  

He said fake companies were used to convert black money into white.

Muhammad Hammad Azhar said if anyone is involved in corruption in our ranks we will hand over the person to NAB by ourselves.

He appreciated Joint Investigation Team for unearthing the corruption saga of Asif Ali Zardari.

He said Aleema Khan never enjoyed any public office and she provided her money trail of her properties to the Supreme Court.

Senator Syed Shibli Faraz said that democracy gets strengthen with the accountability. He said both families deputed blue eyed officers in institutions to hide their corruption which defamed democracy and politics of the country.

He said people of Pakistan are paying the price of mega corruption.

PTI leaders during the conference criticized PML (N) leaders for not giving answers of actual questions which the people want to know regarding the corruption conviction.
