Senator Rehman Malik said on Friday that he had confirmed every word of the 200-page report that he had prepared regarding Hudaibiya Mills and Sharif family’s alleged money laundering.

Speaking to media persons gathered outside the Judicial Academy, the former interior minister said that he had presented the JIT with a copy of the letter he had written to then-president Rafiq Tarar.

Malik also said that he had owned and verified every single word of the 200-page report in front of the JIT. The report was prepared by Malik in 1998 and contains details of Sharif family’s alleged offshore wealth and money laundering activities.

He expressed confidence in the JIT, stating that the team was comprised of professionals. “If they ask for my help in the future as well, I will appear before the JIT,” he added.

The former interior minister said that certain individuals had alleged that there was an understanding between the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

He said that he had written a letter to the interior secretary and asked for security. However, Malik alleged that security had not been granted to him. “They thought that I would not appear in front of the JIT if security was not granted to me,” he said.

Malik served in the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) at various posts, and went on to become the agency’s director-general. In the mid-1990s, while being in the FIA, he investigated Nawaz Sharif for corruption during the second government of Benazir Bhutto.

At present, Malik is a member of the Senate for the second time in a row from the PPP-Parliamentarians. He also chairs the Senate Committee on Interior and Narcotics and is a member of several others.

The JIT, formed on May 6 following the Supreme Court’s April 20 judgment in the Panama case, is probing the prime minister's family's global financial assets.

The JIT has also summoned Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar on June 24, according to sources. 

So far, the JIT has recorded statements of several members of the Sharif family, including Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, and the PM's sons, Hassan and Hussain. 

The JIT will submit its complete investigation report on July 10 to the Supreme Court's special implementation bench.
