I have money-laundering proofs against Sharifs: Rehman Malik


Islamabad June 23 (TNS): Senator Rehman Malik ahead of an appearance before the Joint Investigation Team probing the prime minister and his family in the Panama Papers case said on Friday that he has all the evidence to corroborate his claim that the Sharif family used the Huddabiyya Paper Mill to launder money from the country.

“I stick to my assertion. Ten officers including Waseem Ahmed, Sajjad Haider, Basharat Shahzad, Javed Hassan and Sannaullah had prepared the report about the money-laundering trail of the Sharif family. I am going with the letter written to the then president and other evidence to produce before the JIT. Now onwards, no other evidence will be required to prove charges against the Sharif family,” he said while taking to the media outside the Federal Judicial Academy, where the JIT is headquartered.

“I am not a cricket player, I am a hockey player. I will square a goal and only then will come out of the FJA building. I will only come out when the JIT is fully satisfied,” he said.

Malik said that the investigation carried out by him and 10 other officers against the Sharif family for their involvement in the money-laundering was based on five FIRs and all evidence is there with him in this regard and he was going to produce them before the JIT.
