‘Pakistan govt knows who transferred $1bn to UK’

KARACHI: Broadsheet LLC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Kaveh Moussavi has said that he had “voluntarily” identified a suspicious bank account in the United Kingdom having an amount of $1 billion but the government of Pakistan has not shown any interest in tracing it.

Responding to a question in an interview with BBC Urdu on Friday, he said that the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan knows whom the suspicious account belonged to. However, he stayed short of revealing the identity during the interview.

The Broadsheet CEO said that he was in talks with the government to offer his services in tracing the assets of Pakistani political figures abroad. However, he alleged that a representative of the incumbent government talked about “commission” – a term often used in the subcontinent for kickback – for himself upon identifying the bank account.

He said that if an agreement is reached, he can “hand over the evidence collected against the Sharif family to the Pakistani government.”
