LAHORE: The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) launched on Monday a scathing attack on Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) leaders Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif accusing them of involvement in money laundering and transfer of illegal money to Saudi Arabia and London.

Former interior minister Rehman Malik made the allegations at a press conference in the Sharifs' stronghold of Lahore on Monday. Malik waved documents before a packed news conference claiming that he possessed documentary evidence to prove that the Sharif brothers were engaged in money laundering.

He also possessed a decade old confession letter of PML-N stalwart Ishaq Dar in which the senior party leader, who is related to Nawaz Sharif, had admitted the charges of money laundering.

Ishaq Dar is currently a senator and leader of PML-N in Senate.

Rehman Malik said his evidence was concrete and that if any court could discredit his evidence he would quit politics.

Thank you PPP for showing faces responsible for plundering nation's wealth. I hope that PML (N) also comes up with evidence of curruption by others to help people vote for the less currupt politicians.
