LONDON: The three individuals who Broadsheet CEO Kaveh Moussavi claims acted on behalf of the Pakistani authorities on a potential new belongings restoration deal for Pakistan, have accused Moussavi himself of mendacity, making wilful misrepresentations and providing a lower of US$2 million in trade for getting round US$29 million from Prime Minister Imran Khan for Broadsheet — the quantity that Pakistan owed to the belongings restoration agency.

Geo.television has seen a authorized paper by which three individuals — Barrister Zafar Ali QC; Dr. Kersten Pucks, Administration Guide; and Shaid Iqbal, Solicitor of the Supreme Courtroom of England Wales; categorically reject the allegations made in opposition to them. The 13-page doc has been ready by Moussavi’s attorneys at Cromwell and Moring LLP, and printed broadly on media.

The authorized paper says that Dr Pucks is so incensed about Moussavi’s allegations that he has indicated his intention to carry authorized motion in opposition to the Broadsheet CEO.

The authorized paper accommodates a duplicate of a number of messages between Moussavi and Zafar Ali QC.

This 13-page “2019 Moussavi document” revealed {that a} delegation from the UK met PM Imran Khan and his cupboard members to debate a proposal to get better stolen belongings saved overseas.

Final week, after Broadsheet received a virtually US$65 million case from Pakistan, the contents of the “Moussavi document” despatched shockwaves throughout the Pakistani media.

Of their authorized paper titled “Declaration of Facts”, the trio claims that till the tip of December 2018, Moussavi repeatedly made provides of cash to Zafar Ali QC to strategy the Pakistan authorities and persuade them to pay Broadsheet, however Zafar Ali rejected the provides and repeatedly said in no unsure phrases that he had not been instructed by Pakistan.

Zafar Ali QC, Dr Pucks and Shaid Iqbal reject the “Moussavi document” as making misrepresentations and omitting vital messages from Moussavi and, pertinently, Zafar Ali’s responses to them.

The authorized paper confirms that Zafar Ali QC had been approached by the incoming Imran Khan administration to debate choices for a brand new restoration programme. Subsequently, Zafar Ali QC and Dr Kersten Pucks drafted an asset restoration proposal to get better “the largest amount of stolen funds by basing the asset recovery programme outside Pakistan to separate it from the political process, so that no individual would be exempt from investigation”.

Zafar Ali and Shaid Iqbal visited Pakistan on the invitation of media persona and businessman Mohsin Beg and met PM Khan, Asad Umar, Shahzad Iqbal, the Lawyer Common, and the Legislation Minister to debate their proposal.

The doc claims that on the assembly, Imran Khan made it clear he wished to pursue restoration of all stolen cash, no matter political affiliation. The doc said that “there were no meetings at which Mr. Ali put the proposal forward to a member of the intelligence services or armed forces”.

In response to the Declaration of Information, Ali and Dr Pucks wished to entry the “vast amount of relevant information on stolen assets that Moussavi claimed to possess and actively encouraged [him] to share such information”.

The authorized paper alleges that in their conferences with Moussavi, it turned obvious that Moussavi’s major curiosity in indulging them was “his hope to connect it to his long-standing pursuit of recovering billions of dollars in claims against the Pakistani government for his company, Broadsheet”.

The authorized paper additionally says: “Mr Ali and Dr Pucks soon began to have concerns that the information and skills Mr Moussavi claimed to have were exaggerated. In addition, some of Mr Moussavi’s claims became increasingly exaggerated and difficult to believe. He talked about having sold part of his Broadsheet interest to a hedge funds for billions of dollars and bragged about his ability to ground Pakistani aircraft if the Broadsheet debt was not settled within a week. Mr. Ali and Dr. Pucks became increasingly concerned and uncomfortable about such claims and a result of these growing concerns, Mr. Ali and Dr. Pucks stopped engaging with Mr. Moussavi towards the end of 2018. The proposal was not accepted by the Pakistan government and the matter went no further.”

The central criticism of the three in opposition to Mr Moussavi is the declare in his 2019 paper that Mr Ali acted on behalf of the Pakistan authorities to settle his historic Broadsheet claims. They categorically state that that they had repeatedly confused Mr Ali didn’t symbolize Pakistan in any approach; that they themselves have been pitching a mandate from the Pakistani authorities to get better belongings; that that they had not been awarded such mandate; and so they weren’t able to even talk about Broadsheet points with the Pakistani authorities; and so they stress that there are a number of witnesses for his or her place.

You and I can then go forward with both the Sharif bank account in Singapore and South Africa and Mexico.”

“There is two million dollars in this for you. Put your thinking cap on.”

“And we will certainly let the press know that the Chairman is engaged in high treason when he shows no interest in the Sharif money in the bank accounts that I have given you. Put your thinking cap on and you can retire.”

“Zafar, somebody goes to ask the query very shortly: ‘Chairman, isn’t it the case you have been supplied the main points of Sharif accounts in Singapore and didn’t leap on it? Why not?'”

Zafar Ali to Kaveh Moussavi on 28 December 2018: “I’m certain somebody will. Within the meantime, I’m in Dubai on an precise case. The Pak Govt haven’t instructed me but, and should not ever. It’s obscure what they do and why they do it frankly. Till and provided that I’m instructed am I doing to do something? I’ve acquired to concentrate on my precise instances.”

Kaveh Moussavi responds: “Be an entrepreneur Zafar. Opportunities like this don’t knock on your door everyday. And if you become ‘instructed’ I would be able to pay you!

Your actual cases aren’t going to get you retirement this year.”
