ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Accountability Shahzad Akbar said Pakistan had investigated money laundering cases in United Kingdom (UK) and United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Federal Investigating Agency (FIA) team would visit UAE on November 22 for further investigation.

Negotiations were underway with UAE authority to sign an agreement regarding accountability because properties of Pakistani citizen had increased in UAE, he said talking to a private news channel.

He said the present government had already signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with UK on accountability and anti-money laundering. The government was continuously in touch with the British authorities on the matter, he added.

Shahzad Akbar said strict laws would be framed to control money laundering and bring back the looted amount.
