Ishaq Dar is Nawaz Sharif's frontman, says Imran
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Friday that the ideology of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is corruption and alleged that former finance minister Ishaq Dar is Nawaz's frontman.
Addressing a press conference here, the PTI chief read out some documents which he said prove the Sharif family has been looting the public for decades.
"It is all a mafia. They are all involved [in corruption]," the PTI chief alleged. "Where is Ishaq Dar getting all the money from? They're all interlinked. We are facing a mafia," he said, adding that the "Hudaibiya Paper Mills is the real money trail."
"Nawaz, Shehbaz and Dar are all money launderers," and further said Saaed Shaikh in the United States and Saiful Rehman in Qatar are also frontmen for the Sharif family. "Ishaq Dar has 11 companies in Dubai. Hussain Nawaz and Safdar are also employees of these companies," claimed the PTI chairman.
He also said the Sharif brothers are also trying to get a new NRO in order to save themselves. Imran added the reason Nawaz is "raising so much hue and cry over his ouster is that he is afraid the rest of his [ill-gotten] wealth would be disclosed next."
The PTI chief further said Nawaz, Maryam and PMLN's ministers are attacking the judiciary and assured the courts that the entire nation stands with the judiciary.
"The courts should not feel any pressure from this mafia," and added that action should be taken against them or the contempt of court law should be abolished.
Imran said he had been waiting for Nawaz to start the 'campaign' that the PML-N leader had said he would. "But now we are finding out, these [two] brothers are starting the campaign in Saudi Arabia."
While talking of his London flat, the PTI chief said he provided the courts with all the documents that they asked for regarding his properties. "But all they [Sharif family] have is a Qatari letter to show for the billions of rupees they have looted from this nation."
He added that the Sharifs are afraid of accountability which is why they are creating "so much noise".
