Maryam Nawaz Says SAPM Asim Bajwa Should Respond To Corruption Allegations

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz has said that Prime Minister’s Special Assitant on Information Lt Gen (r) Asim Saleem Bajwa should provide a money trail following corruption allegations against him.

Speaking to reporters outside an accountability court in Islamabad, the PML-N leader said after the graft allegations against the former military spokesperson, an explanation was necessary.

She said Gen Asim Bajwa should respond to the allegations of accumulating massive wealth during his tenure as the top military officer.

In a report about the Bajco, a company allegedly owned by Gen Bajwa, journalist Ahmad Noorani had revealed that the growth of the ‘Bajwa family’s business empire in the United States and later in Pakistan directly matches the rise in power of retired general Asim Saleem Bajwa’.

The report claimed, “The Bajwa family’s companies spent an estimated $52.2 million to develop their businesses and $14.5 million to purchase properties in the United States, while Asim Bajwa and his department were encouraging Pakistanis to invest within their relatively undeveloped country. The businesses of the Bajwa family through different companies were named as Bajco Group.”

Subsequently, PM’s Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting and CPEC Authority Chairman Lt Gen (r) Asim Saleem Bajwa ‘strongly rebutted’ the news report about the suspicious growth of his family business.
