Ex-Mehran Bank chief Younis says he personally handed money to Nawaz Sharif

Islamabad, Sun, 11 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 11 (ANI): Former Mehran Bank chief Younis Habib has claimed that he had personally delivered money to former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the latter's home.


The Daily Times quoted Habib, as saying in a private TV channel that 2.5 million rupees was also sent to Shahbaz Sharif through Telegraphic Transfer (TT) on September 27, 1993.


He added Aftab Sherpao was given a "bigger amount so that he brings sizeable deposits to Mehran Bank".


Habib said that in order to make up for mistakes committed in 1990, he extended support in 1993 to Pakistan People's Party and it came to power again that year.


The man on wheelchair said that in 1993, he once again used money and weakened Nawaz Sharif's vote position.


He said the money paid to the politicians was nothing less than a bribe, admitting that taking or giving bribe was a sin.


"Bribe leaves no trace behind," he added.


Habib said in 1990, he was pressurised to arrange money 'by hook or by crook' to be disbursed among politicians. He said it was not possible to arrange that kind of money in a legal way so he had to commit manipulation.


Habib warned bankers to always keep a distance from army, politicians and bureaucrats. (ANI)
