ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry on Friday bashed Hamza Shehbaz for not being a true leader, otherwise he would have surrendered to the arrest warrant.
Speaking to media following the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) incomplete action against Hamza Shehbaz at his residence earlier today, Chaudhry said it was for the first time that a crackdown was launched against influential people.
The process of accountability will not be hindered by any threat, the minister said, adding that,”From Lahore to Larkana, shrieks of mafia can be heard”.
Referring to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s promise of bringing the looted money back to citizens, Chaudhry remarked that the opposition leader of Punjab Assembly was accused of laundering, “had he been a true leader, he would have surrendered to the arrest.”
The action of NAB was in accordance with law, it was the responsibility of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader to cooperate with the bureau, the federal minister said.
Lamenting that the officials were subjected to torture by Hamza’s security guards, Chaudhry continued that the PML-N workers interrupted the state’s action.
He claimed that it has been found that the assets of Sharif family worth more than 85 billion rupees, while evidences against Hamza Shehbaz’s involvement in money laundering have also been surfaced .
