ISLAMABAD: On Friday, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif admitted that he had gifted most of the money received from abroad to his daughter Maryam Nawaz.
The former premier recorded his responses to 120 out of a total of 151 questions today, for a third consecutive day before an accountability court in Islamabad.
He admitted receiving money from abroad, and said he had gifted 77 per cent of it to his daughter.
He reiterated that he was never a part of any transactions related to the sale of Al-Azizia steel mills. I have never claimed to own Al-Azizia mills. I have always said I had nothing to do with the [mills].
Nawaz pointed out that all the money he received from abroad was documented in his tax returns, and that he was free to spend it as he wished.
