Suleman seeks to quell assets row


Suleman Shahbaz, the son of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, said in a Geo TV talk show on Sunday that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leadership had acquired its wealth and assets through completely legal means, beginning with the businesses and agricultural land the Sharif brothers had inherited from their father. Suleman said the allegations of corruption against the party leadership held no ground because all assets had been declared in the form of public documents that detailed each and every enterprise of the Sharifs. Earlier, Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said he had been declaring his assets in and outside the country every year since 2008 and they were public documents.
