Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday said that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) could not prove corruption of even a single penny against him and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
Reacting to the UK court’s verdict about the unfreezing of his and his family’s bank accounts, he said at a press conference in Lahore that the ruling PTI’s ministers have been levelling allegations of corruption but could not prove any wrongdoing against him and his family.
The PML-N president said that he was sent to jail twice during the last three years. When the government failed to prove corruption against him and his children, they approached the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA), he added.
The NCA had conducted a probe in which it examined his financial transactions over the past 20 years and found no evidence of money laundering or criminal activities against him, Shehbaz said.
Finally, the UK agency asked the court that they wanted to end investigations against him and the court approved the request, he added.
“Will UK court let us go unpunished if we had committed corruption?” he asked.
Criticising the prime minister, the PML-N leader said, “NAB-Niazi nexus is a fixed match and FIA is working on the government’s directions.”
He said that he lodged a defamation case against the Daily Mail and asked it provide evidence against him. But it is yet to submit evidence in the case. In order to fabricate a fake story, meetings of the reporter, David Rose, had been arranged with imprisoned people.
Those who are pretending themselves to be “sadiq and ameen” spent millions of rupees to defame him.
“Sideling the Sharif family is the only agenda of the PTI-led government,” Shehbaz said, adding that the rulers had only wasted the nation’s time.
PM Imran Khan and his supporters have been levelling frivolous allegations against him and his family for the last three years.
He asked: “Has there been any doubt after the verdict of the UK court?
