Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Accountability, Shehzad Akbar, said that on Monday, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz had closed the door on the future of Shahbaz Sharif in politics.
As soon as the Lahore High Court rejected his bail application, the aide to the prime minister made the remarks just hours after Shahbaz was arrested. Maryam held a press conference shortly after her arrest, warning that the move would not slow down the anti-government movement.
“Maryam has closed the door on her uncle’s politics,” he told a news conference with Information Minister Shibli Faraz on Monday. He added that he agreed that Shahbaz believed in the politics of reconciliation.
“Yours [Maryam] “The speech was a speech of victory,” Akbar claimed.
Talking about the upcoming Gilgit-Baltistan elections, he asked how many times the opposition leader had visited the area in the last six months.
He claimed that “PML-N is a party in Punjab, they have no concerns about GB.”
Mocking Nawaz, he said that the former prime minister had been the country’s chief executive three times, but his business and children had remained abroad.
Criticizing PML-N spokesperson Maryam Aurangzeb, Shehzad said she was a “hired” spokesperson and could face contempt of court charges if she spoke out against the revocation of Shahbaz’s bail.
‘Alibaba and smart thief’
Talking about the arrest of PML-N president, he said that the court saw that Shahbaz could be arrested so he denied bail. “They are all Alibaba and smart thieves.”
He said that Shahbaz has more money than assets, adding that whenever the court’s verdict is in favor of the party, he praises it.
Akbar dismissed the notion that the case was targeting Shahbaz’s children, adding that it was instead against the opposition leader’s ‘group’.
Akbar said that in this case it was stated that Shahbaz had accumulated a fortune through money laundering. “After you sent the money abroad to launder it, you transferred it back to Pakistan.”
Shahbaz first transferred the money to his wife’s account and then sent it to her account. He wondered why an approved papad was sending millions of dollars to his wife’s account.
The aide to the prime minister said that Shahbaz’s employees had admitted that they had no connection with anonymous companies. He said, “Shahbaz Sharif, you are guilty of corruption of billions of rupees.”
Akbar said that Shahbaz had called it a nexus of the NAB government after his application was rejected. “Do you want selected decisions that are in your favor?”
