    "Around the same time, Abraaj was looking to sell its stake in K-Electric Ltd., the electricity provider to Karachi. Mr. Naqvi tried to secure the cooperation of Pakistan’s then-prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, and his brother Shehbaz, offering a $20 million payment to businessman Navaid Malik for his help in getting it, according to company emails and people familiar with the situation. The government owns a stake in K-Electric and its approval would be required for the sale to go through.

    Shehbaz was “willing to give a strong endorsement” of the deal to Chinese bidders, Mr. Malik said, according to an October 2015 email to Mr. Naqvi from Abraaj partner Omar Lodhi. Mr. Malik said it was “important for him to share every detail with the brothers and get their blessings as well as their instructions as to how this money should be distributed,” such as “a portion to charity” or “a portion to the election fund kitty,” Mr. Lodhi wrote in the email.

    When Mr. Naqvi emailed Mr. Lodhi about the $20 million contract for Mr. Malik in June 2016, he wrote, “This document is explosive in the wrong hands.” Abraaj and K-Electric shouldn’t be named in the document, he wrote: “Keep it generic.”


    “Noted,” Mr. Lodhi responded. Mr. Malik didn’t respond to requests for comment."

    doesnt matter, pakistani people no longer can differentiate between blunt corruption...the nation has fell to the level where there is no hope..just like shitfly cannot differentiate between whats clean and not clean so are the people of pakistan..what should have been a breaking news a discussion of the year has simply disappeared

    look at rafale deal, straight forward thing which is just conflict of interest nothing else but look how its scrutinized, this is straight forward kick back news yet educated Phd will defend the brothers

    recovery is difficult because the money is not in pakistan...you dont have the econmical muscle to force recoveries...
    punishment unfortunately is going to be pain and slow NAB is setup by PMLN PPPP in way that it has limited capacity, power and authority

    IK needs to use the FIA but thats filled up with nonay people, than judiciary has people like justice siddiqui..the whole system has been rotten..only a dictator or prolong PTI govt can fix these things

    honestly i was critical of PML N policies but never thought they were this corrupt

    PMLN should have distant it self from nawaz and should have let cleaner people to take the lead but what can you expect from non democratic party

    No wonder the bald brothers did nothing about K-Electric's inefficiency in karachi and heavy loadshedding, people have really suffered a lot due to this filthy K-Electric in past 6 to 7 years.....may Allah rot these bald brothers in hell.
