PAKISTAN: UK NEWSPAPER ALLEGES SHEHBAZ SHARIF EMBEZZLED AID MONEY

The Daily Mail has claimed the president of Pakistan’s Opposition party PML-N Shehbaz Sharif of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has embezzled millions of British aid money, though the Department for International development has denied the claim.  The Mail on Sunday reported the money stolen by Sharif between 2005 and 2012 came from the projects funded by DFID.  The newspaper also alleges that Shahbaz’s son-in-law received about £1 million from a fund established to rebuild the lives of earthquake victims, and thefts from DFID-funded schemes to give poor women cash to lift them out of poverty and to provide healthcare for rural families, with millions were laundered in Birmingham and then allegedly transferred to Shahbaz’s family’s accounts by UK branches of banks including Barclays and HSBC.
