Ample proofs available to put Sharif family behind bars: Tahirul Qadri
14 April, 2016
LAHORE: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chairman Dr Tahirul Qadri has said that ample proofs are available to put Sharif family behind bars in the wake of Panama leaks. Addressing a press conference via video link from Canada on Wednesday, he said no leader in the world had denied the proofs revealed in Panama Papers.
The PAT chairman said, “Sharifs should be sent to jail and interrogated.” He said action would have been taken against them had the parliament, FIA, FBR and NAB were independent and free. Qadri revealed that on March 21, Hassan Nawaz purchased a property in One Hyde Park, London, worth 42.5 million pounds and the papers were signed on March 30. He said this process of loot and plunder has been continuing for the last 35 years, adding if the relevant institutions wanted to arrest the corrupt they could have done it any time as abundant proofs are available. “But it seems that they do not have the will or are under pressure,” he added.
He said, “We are ready to join any alliance and support any political party as it is our religious and moral obligation to struggle and work against corruption, extremism and terrorism.” He alleged the present rulers joined hands with extremists and terrorists to win the 2013 elections. He wished Army Chief General Raheel all the success in eliminating corruption and terrorism from the country.
