NAB summons Malik Riaz tomorrow in 190 million Pounds case and land donation to Al-Qadir Trust

ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau has summoned Malik Riaz, a real estate tycoon and other beneficiaries on Dec 1 (Thursday) in a case pertaining to 190 million pounds (Rs 50 billion) settlement during the PTI regime.

NAB is also probing Bahria Town’s donation of 458 acres of land to Al-Qadir Trust University in Jhelum district.

This move is being seen as a major development which will confirm the misuse of authority by the PTI government and unlawful financial gains by Imran Khan’s wife and others in this case.

In a letter to Malik Riaz, NAB has asked him to appear before a combined investigation team of the Bureau at 11 am on Dec 1 at the bureau’s Rawalpindi headquarters.

According to NAB, it is a “Call-up notice to the persons acquainted with facts of the case under section 19 of the NAB Ordinance-1999, in probe against holders of public office and others who misused authority for financial gains and criminal breach of trust in the recovery of crime proceeds received from the UK and illegal sealing of its record.”

NAB further stated that Ali Riaz Malik and others entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement with Britain’s National Crime Agency for the repatriation of funds to the government of Pakistan.

“Bahria Town also donated 458 acres, four marlas, and 58 square feet of land, situated at Mauza Barkala, Tehsil Sohawa, District Jhelum, for Al Qadir Trust University. Therefore, you are in possession of information/evidence whatsoever, which relates to the commission of the said offense (s),” the notice added.

Malik Riaz has been asked to come up with complete record regarding the purchase of 458 kanals at Tehsil Sohawa, the agreement through which Bahria Town donated land to Al Qadir Trust along with revenue documents, and details of other property transferred by him, or by any of his relatives, in favor of Al Qadir Trust or any of its trustees.

It is believed that the former first lady (Imran Khan’s wife) is one of the trustees of the trust. In June this year, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah revealed a confidential agreement between the NCA and Malik Riaz’s family (“the counterparties”).
