Khawaja Asif failed to satisfy regarding income: Shahzad Akbar

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) - Barrister Mirza Shahzad Akbar Adviser to the Prime Minister on Accountability and Interior, has said that sources of income have to be proved but Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Asif could not satisfy about his income.

He said that Khawaja Asif remained a public office holder but used to take salary from the company abroad. Khawaja Asif could not prove his salary abroad.

Shahzad Akbar said this while talking to Dunya News program "Dunya Kamran Khan Kay Sath". He said that Khawaja Asif used to take salary from a Dubai-based company which he could not prove.

He said that Khawaja Asif claimed that the Dubai-based company paid him in cash. If the income is legitimate, then there must be a proof, he added.

Barrister Mirza Shahzad Akbar while talking about the arrest of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader by NAB, said that a case of assets beyond means had been registered against Khawaja Asif. He said khawaja Asif failed to give proof of his income abroad in the case.

Reacting to the PML-N vice president’s statement, he said that Maryam Nawaz herself was convicted. Her statement that Khawaja Asif was abducted is ridiculous and does not matter.
