Imran says no one imagined Sharif family would be held accountable
NATHIAGALI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan on Friday said that the Nawaz Sharif is accused of money laundering, and it is historic moment as previously accountability of the Sharif family was unheard of.
Addressing a press conference, the PTI chairman said that the Sharif family presented before the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to be held answerable and not ask questions. “Nobody would have imagined that the Sharif family would be held accountable.”
“We are not doing politics, but rather struggling against the godfather of the mafia,” he said adding the looks after their appearance gives an insight into what might have took place.
Imran Khan said that Nawaz Sharif was not use to fair play and neutral umpires. “Even when he played cricket, and was out, the umpire would declare a no-ball.”
He said the plan of the Sharif brothers was clear, and volumes can be written on their corruption, and even the Panama Papers have the details on the Sharif family.
He said the Nawaz Sharif has himself involved his children in the case, and was implying that this was a conspiracy against them. “The true story of the Sharif brothers is now coming to light,” he said.
He hoped that the JIT would state that the true beneficial owner of the Sharif family’s London flats is Maryam Nawaz. “If Maryam Nawaz is proven to be the actual owner, then the case is closed.”
He said even the Supreme Court said that they have ruined all state institutions. “Since they do not have any answers then they make excuses outside the JIT.”
Speaking about the Rs10 billion defamation case filed by Shahbaz Sharif, he said that they offer bribes and then even file lawsuits. Imran Khan said he was hoping Shahbaz Sharif would take him to court, so he can expose their corruption.
“I will expose their corruption in court,” he said adding that he does not have the money to pay the defamation costs and would instead ask for a loan from Hamza of Salman Shahbaz.
