Ishaq Dar is Nawaz Sharif's front­man, says Im­ran

The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL - IS­LAM­ABAD -APP

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".
