Prime Minister Imran Khan Sunday said the country could have got rid of money laundering if Hudaibiya case was decided on merit and the Sharif family was not given an NRO (National Reconciliation Ordinance) by former military dictator General (r) Pervez Musharraf.

In a meeting with Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry, the prime minister said unfortunately the NRO in Hudaibiya case was used as a precedent in all the succeeding cases. “The Hudaibiya case model has been used in all the cases surfaced so far in which money was laundered abroad through front men and brought back later,” he observed. “Even in the cases of Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari, the use of the very model has been exposed,” he remarked.

The prime minister directed the information minister to disseminate all such details to the masses to expose the real face of the public detractors. He also asked the minister to apprise the people about the adverse impact of the misdeeds committed by Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari on the national economy, consequently making them face the inflation and foreign debts.

“There must be accountability over the use of $60 billion foreign debt obtained during the last 10 years, besides finding out as to who transferred such huge amount to their personal accounts making the people to bear the burden,” the prime minister said, adding that the rules and regulations formulated by the incumbent government under the benami laws will help curb money laundering besides discouraging the practice of holding properties in fictitious names.

While expressing sympathies with the people of Iran facing unprecedented flooding, Prime Minister Imran Khan Sunday said Pakistan is ready to provide any required humanitarian assistance to the neigbouring country. “Our prayers go to the people of Iran as they deal with unprecedented flooding. We stand ready to provide any humanitarian assistance required,” he said in a tweet.
