(Pak Destiny) The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the money laundering of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif family has given some ‘classic’ titles to his son-in-law Safdar and his arch-rival Rehman Malik.
Nawaz’s son-in-law retired Captain Safdar a “dishonest, deceitful and untruthful” and Rehman Malik a “cunning and unreliable.”
In its much-awaited report, the six-member JIT team that probed the Panama Papers case, it said: “Capt Safdar is untruthful, dishonest, deceitful and shifty on many accounts, displaying wanting conduct.” “Safdar’s emphasis was on propagating that he was highly upright, self-contained and an independent person, which was inconsistent with the facts brought out by him during the proceedings.”
Poor Safdar also narrated before the JIT that he had been living on the money of his in-laws. “I along with other family members was receiving an allowance from Mian Muhammad Sharif, the PM’s father, while in exile in Jeddah and thereafter. This was in addition to the day-to-day expenses also being provided by Muhammad Sharif to family members. Safdar was receiving about 1,500 Saudi Riyal per month and this practice is still continuing, however, according to the JIT report, despite repeated questions, he did not divulge the source of his allowance after Muhammad Sharif’s death.”
How shameful this is for Safdar who in other words says he is receiving Rs45000 from his in-laws per month.
Former interior minister Rehman Malik gets the new title from the JIT that called him “cunning and unreliable.”
According to Express News, the JIT probing Panama Papers case declared Malik unreliable for giving statements to mislead the investigation while he had no proof of corruption against the Sharif family.
Declaring Malik cunning, unreliable and politically motivated, the JIT report says that the former minister lied about submitting tax records of Sharifs’ London flats to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), and that his aim was only political point-scoring.
This revelation is also shameful for Malik who cannot boast any more about his contribution to the fall of Sharifs. – Pak Destiny
