He claims he laundered millions on behalf of Shahbaz’s family from a nondescript office in Birmingham without attracting suspicion from Britain’s financial regulators.
The paper said that Shehbaz and his family were embezzling tens of millions of pounds of public money and laundering it in Britain.
