LONDON: The Related Paper Restricted (ANL) has said that previous Punjab boss priest Shahbaz Sharif’s child in-regulation, Imran Ali Yousaf, purposely got cash from Ikram Naveed – a senior chief of Seismic tremor Reproduction and Recovery Authority (ERRA) – and was associated with significant level debasement.
ANL, which is the distributor of Mail on Sunday and The Every day Mail, has submitted two separate safeguard papers for Shahbaz and Yousaf. They had been denounced by the paper in David Rose’s report in July 2019 and the columnist had said that they were both associated with defilement.

The specialist kept up with that the claims “were totally false and were intended to censure, irritate and embarrass Yousaf”.
The ANL’s guard additionally said: “Worldwide benefactors to the ERRA have incorporated the UK Government by means of the Office for Global Turn of events (DFID), which dispensed £53.3 million in the help period of the work and which swore a further £70 million over the initial three years following the seismic tremor for a scope of recreation and restoration (R&R) exercises for which worldwide subsidizing was required.

He convinced Naveed to buy three huge units at the pace of Rs4,500 per square foot in the Ali Exchange Center improvement venture and afterward went into a plan with Naveed by which Naveed consented to steal further open assets from ERRA for the joint advantage”. It said that Ikram Naveed made installments to Ali and Friends on July 15, 2011, which contained quake alleviation and remaking reserves (£197,482.57) and made more installments on September 6, 2012, and Walk 12, 2013, for the amounts of Rs20.250 million and Rs13.997 million were moved to a ledger held by Ali and Friends.
