ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday tweeted that the documents released by the British Virgin Island’s Federal Investigation Agency (BVFIA) show that offshore companies were listed under the ownership of deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz.

Imran Khan claimed that the documents showed that Maryam Nawaz was the owner of the offshore companies that owned Mayfair apartments. He alleged that Nawaz Sharif used Maryam Nawaz to launder money abroad since she does not have a source of income.

On Friday, Imran Khan had termed Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif a ‘security risk’ for the country.

The statement came a day after the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) initiated formal proceedings against Asif to probe into his alleged involvement in money laundering on a complaint received from the PTI.

In a meeting with PTI member Usman Dar, Imran welcomed NAB’s move to commence inquiry in the complaint sent to NAB Chairman Javed Iqbal in January in which Dar had accused Asif of financial wrongdoing and money laundering.
