“In August 2019, eight account freezing orders were secured at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in connection with funds amounting to £120 million. These followed an earlier freezing order in December 2018 linked to the same investigation for £20 million. All the account freezing orders relate to money held in UK bank accounts,” said UK’s National Crime Agency in a statement issued on Tuesday. “The assets will be given to the government of Pakistan.”
Hussain owns Bahria Town, which is one of the biggest private-sector employers in Pakistan and is the largest privately-owned property development firm.
