Dr Asim names Zardari’s ‘henchmen’ in new leaked video



A day after hurling serious allegations against Owaiz Muzaffar alias Tappi, a new ‘confessional’ video surfaced on Thursday showing PPP’s former federal minister Dr Asim Hussain making revelations about the business and financial affairs of former president Asif Ali Zardari, a private news channel reported.

In the video, shot at the same location as the earlier clip, Dr Asim appears to be naming Zardari’s close aides who look after his financial interests to maintain his political clout.

The video appears to show the former federal minister, who is facing charges of corruption and terror financing, claiming that Nawabshah resident Shah Nawaz Junejo takes care of “illegal matters” in interior Sindh on behalf of the former president of Pakistan.

“I think there is a man named Shah Nawaz Junejo who is Zardari’s henchman. He looks after matters in interior Sindh…illegal matters in Sindh,” Dr Asim says in the video.

He said that former Senate chairman and senior lawyer Farooq Nayak looked after Zardari’s financial interests in Switzerland, Dr Ghani Ansari and a banker Ghafoor in Dubai, and a female secretary, whose name he could not recall, overseeing his financial affairs in the United States.

Dr Asim Hussain further said that a man named Hassan Ali deals matters related to lands in interior Sindh on behalf of Asif Ali Zardari.
