How Mr clean Musharraf became a billionaire?
The former military dictator Pervez Musharraf accumulated billions in offshore accounts besides the property that he has already purchased abroad or inside Pakistan, alleges a report in a leading Pakistan Newspaper.
During the early months of his taking over as a military
dictator following his coup against the Nawaz Sharif government, General
Musharraf made his wealth public, which hardly contained any cash but only
some plots in different parts of the country. Musharraf claimed to be the Mr
Clean of Pakistan.
How did he become a billionaire is a million dollar question? Owing to the broader scope of the commission of inquiry and its power mentioned in the TORs, the commission is fully empowered to summon him and ask him the details of his offshore accounts, a task which couldn’t be done by the accountability bureau and investigating agency. says the report.
