Ishaq Dar is Nawaz Sharif’s frontman, says Imran

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said on Friday that the ideology of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is corruption.
Addressing a press conference here, the PTI chief read out some documents which he said prove the Sharif family has been looting the public for decades.
Taking aim at the former finance minister, Imran said Ishaq Dar is Nawaz’ Sharif’s frontman.
“It is all a mafia. They are all involved [in corruption],” the PTI chief alleged.
“Where is Ishaq Dar getting all the money from? They’re all interlinked. We are facing a mafia,” he said, adding that the “Hudaibiya Paper Mills is the real money trail.”
“Ishaq Dar has 11 companies in Dubai. Hussain Nawaz and Safdar are also employees of these companies,” he claimed.
Imran said the reason Nawaz is “raising so much hue and cry over his ouster is because he is afraid the rest of his [ill-gotten] wealth would be disclosed next.”
The PTI chief assured that the entire nation stands with the courts.
“The courts should not feel any pressure from this mafia.”
Imran said he had been waiting for Nawaz to start the ‘campaign’ that the PML-N leader had said he would. “But now we are finding out, these [two] brothers are starting the campaign in Saudi Arabia.”
About his London flat, the PTI chief said he provided the courts with all the documents that they asked for regarding his properties.
“But all they [Sharif family] have is a Qatari letter to show for the billions of rupees they have looted from this nation.”
He added that the Sharifs are afraid of accountability which is why they are creating “so much noise”.
“The courts should either take action or abolish the contempt of court rule,” he demanded.
About the Model Town incident and his ‘alliance’ with PAT chief Dr Tahirul Qadri, Imran said it is a humanitarian issue and he will always support Qadri in raising voice against the injustice.
Imran had said in a tweet on Thursday that the Panama and iqama issues were only the tip of the iceberg.
“I have always maintained Panama & Iqama were only a tip of the corruption iceberg. Tomorrow in my press conference I will reveal more facts about the ill-gotten wealth/properties stashed abroad by the Sharifs & their corruption mafia,” he had posted.
