ISLAMABAD - Nawaz Sharif has sought NRO with an offer of indirect payment through a third country.
*Federal Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda has revealed.*
*He said that former premier Nawaz Sharif made not one but several requests for NRO.*
The federal minister, while answering a question about PM Imran Khan’s claim of being approached for an NRO, said that not one but several such requests were made directly and indirectly by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader Mian Nawaz Sharif.
“Nawaz Sharif made several requests including one through another country and reportedly he (Nawaz Sharif) proposed an indirect payment to get an NRO,” said Faisal Vawda.
Vawda, however, did not name the country who he claimed approached the government for NRO.
The minister added that the government has flatly refused to even talk about such reconciliation or relief in corruption cases with anyone or any country.
It is pertinent to note here that earlier this month, Prime Minister Imran Khan told a delegation of senior journalists that someone approached him and offered money for “relief” from accountability process.
