PTI requests NAB to initiate money-laundering probe against Khawaja Asif

PTI’s Usman Dar submits evidence with NAB against Khawaja Asif

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Usman Dar on Tuesday in a letter requested the National Accountability Court (NAB) to initiate probe into financial misappropriation by Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif.
The request comes a day after the party’s core group’s meeting declared Asif a “security risk” and tasked Dar with filing a corruption complaint against the foreign minister.
In its letter addressed to NAB chairman, the PTI leader alleged that Asif is part of the “gang” involved in the cover-up of money laundering and financial misappropriation by former premier Nawaz Sharif.
The letter states that Dar possesses irrefutable evidence against Asif, which includes foreign bank account details showing transactions worth millions. Asif used assets abroad for money laundering, the letter states.
Dar in his letter requested NAB to take notice on the matter and initiate probe against financial crimes and money laundering against Asif.
He said that he is ready to submit details including records of Asif’s hotels abroad, bank accounts, and documents related to benami transactions (transactions done in someone else’s name).
PTI on Monday declared Asif a ‘security risk’ and claimed to have ‘solid corruption proofs’ against him.
The core group also approved the formation of a task force under the leadership of party president of Central Punjab Aleem Khan, which will be responsible for exposing the alleged corruption of Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif in the Ashiana-e-Quaid housing scheme project.
