Broadsheet was tasked to make cases against political rivals, says Marriyum Aurangzeb
While addressing media, Aurangzeb stressed that the attitude of Advisor to Prime Minister on Accountability Shahzad Akbar and National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is disappointing.
"Broadsheet Company was asked to make a case against Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The company was given a list of political rivals to sue. 600 crore were granted to file a case against an elected premier. A dictator cannot give this much money out of his own pocket," she said.
She said that Imran Khan should be the one questioned and asked about assets.
“Broadsheet exposed Pakistan's outdated system. The country cannot run like this anymore," she added.
Earlier on January 11, Broadsheet Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Kaveh Moussavi said that Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif offered them a bribe to abandon the investigation against his foreign assets.
In a Youtube interview, he revealed that his company had flatly refused the deal offered by a person claiming to be a nephew of former premier.
“Sharif family has assets not only in the United Kingdom but across the globe. The process of accountability was ongoing, but after President Pervaiz Musharraf left office, his successors started hampering the process by not giving access to information and termination of Broadsheet’s contract,” he added.
