PESHAWAR : Bahria Town Chairman Malik Riaz Hussain said on Thursday that he was innocent of any financial wrongdoing, adding that the National Crime Agency (NCA) had been conducting an inquiry for the past one year but did not find him guilty.

The property tycoon was speaking to media while he was inaugurating a Bahria Town Office in Peshawar. Malik Riaz said that his children were overseas Pakistanis and British citizens. He said that only a settlement had been conducted on a civil matter.

“The NCA says we didn’t commit any crime. The money should be brought back to Pakistan and others like me should also bring their wealth into the country,” he said.

During the media talk he also spoke about Bahria Town’s settlement with the Supreme Court according to which the company was supposed to pay Rs460 billion for land that it occupies in the Malir District.

“We have an understanding with the Supreme Court. We will pay back the money even if I have to sell my house,” he said.

Malik Riaz said that he agree to anything with the government of Pakistan. “As per the settlement with the court, this money will be given to Pakistan,” he said.
