The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday proved that it controlled by the government of the time.
Today NAB launched investigation against Farah Khan alias Gogi, a close friend of former prime minister Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi, on allegations of accumulating illegal assets beyond known sources of income, money laundering, and maintaining various accounts in the name of businesses during the last three years.
Where was NAB when Gogi was looting money using her connection with Pinki peerni. NAB must be sleeping then because it was Imran Khan’s government.
According to a press release issued by NAB, “huge turnover amounting to Rs847 million was found in her [bank] account during the last three years” which it said is not commensurate with her stated account profile.
“These credits were received in her personal account and withdrawn immediately after credit within a short time period,” it stated, noting that several “adverse” media reports had been found where Farah — referred to in the statement as Farhat Shahzadi (Alias Farah Khan) — was alleged of “being involved in [acquiring] assets beyond legal means”.
“Farah’s income tax returns, it was observed that her assets “significantly increased from 2018 onwards “for unknown reasons. She has been frequentlytravelling to foreign jurisdictions; nine times to the USA and six times to the UAE”.
PMLN’s Maryam Nawaz had called Farah Gogi’s scandal “te mother of all scandals of transfers and postings amounting to Rs6 billion.”
Farah had already fled to Dubai. Maryam said she would be brought back through Interpol.
NAB should emerge as independent institution free of any interference. PAK DESTINY
