While addressing a press conference in the federal capital, Tareen said that Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif is guilty of money laundering if he does not have proofs of funds’ transfer. He said that the government media, run using people’s money is being used for personal gains and to malign political opponents.

He called the Prime Minister out saying that he was in the ‘dock’ and not PTI’s leadership.

He demanded PM Nawaz to not avoid questions like where did his earnings come from and if he has earned all his wealth through legal means then how much tax he has given till present day.

Tareen also demanded the Prime Minister to table details of his assets before the nation within one week. His children too have a house in London but they have paid the taxes, he added. He possesses transaction details of the funds he had transferred abroad, Tareen said.
