Dr Asim Hussain’s mother filed a petition in the Sindh High Court against video leaks aired on media where Dr Asim appears to level corruption charges on Pakistan’s top political leadership including former President Asif Ali Zardari.
In the petition filed on Friday, she asked the court to order Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority to notify news channels to stop airing confessional videos of Dr Asim Hussain.
She said that she had already shared her fears with the court that such confessional videos will be released.
Two videos of Dr Asim Hussain were released on Wednesday and Thursday respectively where he levels serious corruption charges on former President Asif Ali Zardari and Pakistan People’s Party leader Owais Muzaffar.
On Thursday a video showing PPP’s former federal minister Dr Asim Hussain making revelations about the business and financial affairs of former president Asif Ali Zardari surfaced.
The video appears to show the former federal minister, who is facing charges of corruption and terror financing, claiming that Nawabshah resident Shah Nawaz Junejo takes care of “illegal matters” in interior Sindh on behalf of the former president of Pakistan.
“I think there is a man named Shah Nawaz Junejo who is Zardari’s henchman. He looks after matters in interior Sindh…illegal matters in Sindh,” Dr Asim says in the video.
He said that former Senate chairman and senior lawyer Farooq Nayak looked after Zardari’s financial interests in Switzerland, Dr Ghani Ansari and a banker Ghaffor in Dubai, and a female secretary, whose name he could not recall, overseeing his financial affairs in the United States.
Dr Asim Hussain further said that a man named Hassan Ali deals matters related to lands in interior Sindh on behalf of Asif Ali Zardari.
A video clip of Dr Asim Hussain emerged on Wednesday in which he leveled serious allegations against Owais Muzaffar alias Tappi, accusing him of being involved in corruption.
The video clip of the suspect, which seems to have been filmed during the course of his interrogation, shows Dr Asim claiming that Owais Muzaffar was raised by former president of Pakistan and PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari’s mother.
“Owais Muzaffar was involved everywhere where there was corruption,” Dr Asim can be heard saying in the clip, adding that Tappi had become a ‘shadow chief minister of Sindh’.
Dr Asim himself is a suspect who is under arrest and undergoing trial for corruption. The doctor has been accused of providing medical treatment to terrorists and has also been involved in a corruption scandal of Rs462 billion.
