ISLAMABAD: All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) chief Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf has denied reports of any illegal offshore holdings during his tenure as army chief and president of Pakistan.

The party’s secretary general Muhammad Amjad said in a statement on Saturday that the APML chief never had any property outside the country till 2009.

“It was only when he (Musharraf) went to London and stayed there for a while that some of his friends in the Gulf states helped him to purchase flats in London and Dubai,” the statement said.

Till 2009, the ex-president did not even have a bank account outside country and there is no question at all of Musharraf running an off-shore company or maintaining an off-shore bank account, the statement added.

Rehan Ali | 6 years ago | Reply The usual rebuttal. Similar to the ones given by all politicians. Musharaf accumulated wealth but being a khaki makes it legal for him. I really love the argument above that their corruption is too little compared to others because it exemplify the spinelessness of our youthias.
