  1. You obviously have overlooked and forgotten to mention the Rs 350 million that was found deposited in Moonis Elahi's bank account in Pakistan. What about his properties in Spain and Germany, apart from the apartment in UK. Is this a mistake or an intentional ommission, since you have counted all the assets of Shahbaz Shariff. In Pakistan financial integrity is no longer a virtue. While at the subject you have forgotten to mention that Raja Riaz lives in a 1,000 yard villa in Tech Society, owned by his wife, yet his assets are only 55 lakh.

  2. Who believe their asset values.A small house in posh colony cost ten million.You should multiply their assets value of each of them by 100000% to reach probably closer figure.All looted from stomach crunching hungry poor,safaidposhs,retired from private sector,honest in all sectors.
