The statement was presented to the Lahore High Court on Friday which also included a complaint of accumulating illegal assets. A report conducted showed that the assets of Hussain and his family has increased to Rs. 2.556 billion between 1985 and 2018. It contained the point of Hussain having received foreign remittances accounting up to Rs.581 million. Amazingly enough, five of the people who sent these in, have denied ever doing so.

This proves how both the leaders have falsified information in bringing money to Pakistan.

NAB here asked the court to let go any petition filed by the leaders against the inquiries made.
