Punjab anti-corruption body recovered land worth Rs129b last year: Shahzad
Special Assistant on Accountability Shahzad Akbar has said Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment recovered government land worth 129 billion rupees last year.
Replying to PML-N leader Maryam Aurangzeb’s questions in a news conference in Islamabad on Monday, he said Asset Recovery Unit spent 23 million rupees so far on its administrative expenditures, including the salaries of staff.
“Those that have ruled the country for 35 years have been indulged in corruption and illegal practices, now that they are being held accountable there is tremendous hue and cry,” said Akbar.
The Special Assistant said NAB has also recovered money under plea-bargain law.
Akbar also alleged that the PML-N had laundered money in the past through cash boys . “Who were Masroor Anwar and Shoaib cash boys?” he asked.
“I have been trying to find the President on Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Shehbaz Sharif but he seems to be unavailable, I just want him to answer 18 questions asked by the anti-corruption institutes and that’s all,” he said.
He further said Asset Recovery Unit was formed to recover illegal money of Pakistanis abroad.
