Shahbaz Sharif NCA probe: Govt embarrassing itself, says Shahid Khaqan Abbasi

LAHORE: Former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday lashed out at the government, saying that it had embarrassed itself in front of the world with the British National Crime Agency (NCA)’s probe against PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif.

In a hard-hitting press conference, flanked by Rana Sanaullah and Ahsan Iqbal, Abbasi said the government’s claims that it was not involved or pursuing money laundering cases against Shahbaz had been exposed.

He said that the Assets Recovery Unit (ARU) and, as per the PML-N’s sources, even Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) officials, used to go to London to meet NCA officials.

“The standard set by this government, when it comes to lying, is totally unique,” he said. “The prime minister of this country, in his own office, creates an Asset Recovery Unit that has no legal basis. And what has that ARU done?” he questioned.

He referred to the papers in his hand, saying that they were official documents submitted by the NCA at the UK court.
