A day before his departure to London with former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, leader of the Opposition Shahbaz Sharif resigned from his position as Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chief. The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president in his brief resignation to National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser, nominated party MNA from Sheikhupura Rana Tanvir Hussain as his replacement.
A recent investigation report by Daily Mail alleges that Shehbaz’s son-in-law, Ali Imran, embezzled about £1million from a fund established to rebuild the lives of 2005 earthquake victims. Britain’s Department for International Development gave £54 million in aid money to this fund. The report also gives details of how the Sharif family laundered millions, received via kick-back in different projects, to UK.
