PM wants the govt to look into past foreign loans
If General Musharraf hadn’t given the Sharif family an NRO in the Hudaibiya case, today there wouldn’t be so much money laundering in Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan told Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry.
During a meeting on Sunday, he said money laundering in Pakistan would have come to an end if it hadn’t been for the NRO. He said that unfortunately, this was being used as a model for other money laundering cases.
The premier said the government must look into the $60 billion taken as loans in the past 10 years by the previous governments. He said in the last 10 years those loans were taken and the leaders lined their pockets.
He told the information minister that the government must find out who has lined their pockets at the cost of the people.
The regulations introduced against by the present government against benami (without name) accounts are helping curb money laundering, said PM Khan.
