NAB records statement of applicant in Musharraf graft inquiry


ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday recorded the statement of applicant, Lt Colonel Inaam Rahim in the corruption inquiry initiated against former president General (r) Pervez Musharraf.

Rahim was summoned by NAB to record his statement about the data and evidence pertaining to Musharraf’s corrupt practices, which he was allegedly in possession of.

According to the application, Musharraf possesses eight assets in the form of fixed property in Pakistan and two abroad. He owns a total of three properties in Karachi, two in Islamabad, one in Lahore and Gwadar each.

One property has been registered in his wife, Sehba Musharraf’s name, while the other two are in Dubai, UAE and the United Kingdom, respectively.

Three vehicles — two Toyota Land Cruisers and one Corolla are registered under Musharraf’s name and four vehicles under his wife’s.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC), in February, allowed investigation against the former president after which a formal probe was initiated against him.

This directive was issued by an IHC bench comprising Justice Athat Minallah and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb over the petition filed by Rahim in 2014, seeking an investigation into the alleged corruption of the former president.
