Former PM Nawaz Sharif grilled inside Kot Lakhpat Jail Lahore
*LAHORE: **Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif grilled inside Kot Lakhpat Jail Lahore by the National Accountability Bureau Joint Investigation Team.*
*A combined investigation team of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has interrogated the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.*
Nawaz Sharif had been given on 14 days remand to the anti-corruption watchdog by an accountability court on October 11 over charges of massive money laundering.
Sources said that Sharif has not given satisfactory answers to the 13 questions raised by the investigators. He insisted upon questioning his son Hussain as he is handling the business affairs.
The investigators questioned Sharif for the alleged money laundering of Rs410 million through the partnership of Yousuf Abbas and her daughter Maryam Nawaz.
To this, Sharif replied that they should table the questions to the concerned persons as business is not an illegal thing.
When questioned for the transfer of shares worth Rs11 million to a foreigner, Naseer Abdullah, by the accused persons, Sharif said that the family has business connections with the person.
Sources said that the anti-corruption watchdog officials have also sought reasons for returning the transferred shares by the foreigner in 2014, to which Sharif told them again to question Hussain Nawaz.
