Maryam blasts govt over arrest of Muqam’s son

LAHORE: Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President on Tuesday slammed the arrest of the son of PML-N’s provincial president in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Amir Muqam.
“Arrest of son of Ameer Muqam by Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) at the behest of his political rivals is blatant political victimization,” she tweeted.
The PML-N leader has criticized Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, asking it about the corruption worth billions in Peshawar Metro Bus project.
Slamming the FIA, she questioned if they don’t see “corruption” in the Peshawar Metro Bus project.
Maryam Nawaz said that nothing has been proven against PML-N leadership but, there are bulks of evidence against you, she continued.
“Don’t worry; days of your accountability are near,” she said, adding, “nothing has surfaced against us but there are piles of [evidence of corruption] against you.”
Earlier, the Anti-Corruption Wing of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had arrested Amir Muqam’s son over alleged financial corruption in a road construction project.
FIA had initially launched investigation against Muqam, who served as the adviser of then prime minister Nawaz Sharif during the previous government over alleged corruption in N-90, a road constructed between Shangla and Alpuri in district Shangla.
According to the agency, Muqam’s son Ishtiaq among five contractors were arrested by the FIA soon after completion of an inquiry into alleged corruption in the construction of Alpuri Road in KP’s Shangla district. – NNI
