LAHORE A spokesman of the Sharif Family, while replying to queries raised by some quarters about the detail of assets submitted by Chief Minister Punjab Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif to the Election Commission of Pakistan, has said total size of foreign investment of the CM is not more than Rs 30 million, which was made by him during his exile to the United Kingdom, which was meant to arrange finances for him and his family members when he was under treatment for serious disease in London. The Spokesman disclosed that the CM had decided to transfer his foreign assets, in which his personal investment was not more than 18 per cent and the rest of the amount was in the shape of loans, back to Pakistan, after selling them off and clearing all financial obligations. A letter issued to the media on Tuesday, it has been stated further: There are certain news and comments aired and printed in a section of the media about the details of assets submitted by the CM. Various questions have been raised in these news and comments about the foreign assets of the CM. The Sharif Family has already made it clear that total size of foreign investment of Shahbaz Sharif is not more than Rs 30 million, which was made by him during his exile to the UK to arrange finances for him and his family members when he was under treatment for a serious disease in London. It has also been pointed out that after his return from the UK; no addition had been made in this investment. Moreover, the CM had also decided to transfer his remaining foreign assets (in which his personal investment is not more than 18 per cent and the rest of the investment was based on loans) back to Pakistan after selling them and paying off all financial obligations. In the light of this decision of the CM, the process of selling of his assets in the UK and paying of bank dues has already been started, says the letter. The spokesperson also addressed the question why the CM launched this business in the UK? The simple answer is that Shahbaz Sharif had to make it during the difficult days of his imposed exile when Dictator Pervez Musharraf made it virtually impossible for the Sharif Family in Pakistan to earn their livelihood by applying a spate of nefarious tactics. The details of despicable steps taken by the despot for the 'economic genocide of the Sharif Family need not any repetition as details are already well know to the people of Pakistan, he asserted, while hoping that these submissions would provide a better understanding and judgment of the facts, and one would be able to see the facts in the light of their true prospective.
