ISLAMABAD – Believable yet shrouded in a mystery that why Saudi Royal family was so generous on the former President Pervaiz Musharraf that he purchased comfortable flats and apartments in Dubai.
According to PakistanTribe, Mushraff says, ‘I had not bought London flats and apartments when I was in power,’ adding that in 2009 he individually pursued all this abroad.
On a question that why the Saudi Royal family was so kind on Musharraf, he replied that he had family terms with King Shah Abdul Aziz, ‘we smoke together’ besides he was with Musharraf during the Haj ceremony.
Musharraf also admits he was given money by the Saudi Royal family through which he bought London flats and apartments.
He noted that in 2001 Saudi Arabia stopped oil to Pakistan but even then he did not go begging.
The former President clarified that he had not taken a single penny from the national exchequer illegally, but rather he used to deliver lecture abroad for which he was paid around $100,000 to $150,000 per speech.
