LAHORE: Punjab Information Minister Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan has said that Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif was arrested for his corruption and dishonesty.
Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan while talking to Dunya News said that Shehbaz Sharif s arrest is the result of his actions over the last forty years, especially the last ten years.
He said that Courts and accountability bodies gathered evidence against Shehbaz Sharif after years of sweating. Last time, on the order of arrest, Shehbaz Sharif had hid in his house.
Minister said that several references have been filed against him in the NAB, which is being investigated. More than a dozen culprits have been arrested in Rs9.5 billion money laundering case through Ramzan Sugar Mill alone. Many of them have become full witnesses and have provided complete evidence to the NAB, he added.
He alleged that Sharif family used characters like Sharafat Masih, Manzoor, Mushtaq Cheeni, Masroor Ahmed, Nisar Gul for corruption.
The entire corruption and money laundering office was run by his cash boys under the auspices of the Sharif family, said Fayyaz-ul-Hassan.
He said the accusation that the government is using the NAB for political revenge is baseless.
