Extraction of laundered money primary task of Khan’s govt: Fawad
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) spokesperson Fawad Ch on Saturday stated PM-in-waiting Imran Khan has asked envoys of Britain and Saudi Arabia to return laundered money back to Pakistan.
He was talking to media in Islamabad.
Fawad further added that their government would raise issue of Avenfield reference with UK government soon after assuming power. He also urged UK and Saudi Arabia to cooperate in identifying those corrupts who have stashed looted wealth in their countries.
Earlier, cricketer-turned-politician told UK’s High Commissioner to Pakistan Thomas Drew that “it was our firm resolve to bring back the country s money laundered to the UK”.
A spokesman for the British High Commission said: “Tackling corruption is a UK government priority and we will continue to work constructively with Pakistan on this issue.”
On forming governments in Centre and Punjab, the anchor-turned-politician replied PTI’s tally in federation has soared to 177 and to 186 in Punjab. He said, “Imran Khan will name Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s chief ministers by August 11”.
The slogan of extracting wealth from the corrupts and bringing it back to Pakistan has dominated Imran Khan’s election campaign. On the other hand, deposed premier Nawaz Sharif and his political heir-apparent Maryam Nawaz are serving 10-year and 6-year jail sentences in Avenfield reference case.
