Broadsheet CEO Claims Pakistan Govt Knowledge of $1bn Transfer:
Broadsheet CEO Kaveh Mousavi claimed that the Pakistani government had prior knowledge about transferring one billion dollars to the UK bank. During an interview, he revealed that he found out about a suspicious bank account in the UK with $1 billion.
What is Broadsheet Case?
Broadsheet LLC, the London-based assets recovery firm, was assigned by NAB during the government of Parvez Musharraf in 1999. NAB handed over Broadsheet a list of 200 people to track down their assets in the USA and UK. NAB declared them “targets” in the agreement.
AB and Broadsheet signed the contract to investigate assets of Generals, business people, politicians in the UK and US. The main targets mentioned in the contract were Asif Ali Zardari, Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif.
The firm didn’t take back a single asset from any target anywhere globally, but its proceedings against NAB started as the contract broke. The agreement ended due to a violation of terms and conditions. NAB terminated the contract in 2003.
Kaveh Moussavi, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Broadsheet LLC, has mentioned that he had “purposely” found out about a suspicious bank account in the UK having an amount of $1 billion. But unfortunately, Islamabad not showing any interest in tracing the suspicious UK bank account.
Moussavi told in an interview with BBC Urdu that Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan knows about this suspicious bank account and his knowledge of whom the doubtful bank account belonged. But still, he avoided disclosing the details of that person during his interview.
Moussavi said that he offered the Pakistani government his services to detect Pakistani political elites’ assets out of the country. However, he claimed that an envoy of the present government discussed “commission” for himself upon identifying the suspicious UK bank account.
He said that if a deal or contract is signed, he can provide the proofs gathered against the Sharif family to the present government. The Broadsheet CEO revealed that before he could start freezing the identified bank accounts, he was fraudulently removed from the task.
