Nawaz Sharif New Plaza, Sharif Tower in England- TWIN TOWERS in ILFORD LONDON
No Sharif family member other than Hasan Nawaz owns Flagship Investments Ltd and the premises being used as the company’s offices are rented, said a Sharif family spokesperson in a press statement.
Issued in reply to an article (Sharifs own property worth billions in London, Daily Times, December 24, 2009), the release points out that Hasan Nawaz “has paid millions of pounds in taxes” to the UK tax authorities as a resident and has even been featured in the Who’s Who of Britain’s Young Business Elite.
The release also states that the offices in Tower Bridge House are of a multinational auditing and accounting firm and do not belong to the company. However, the address for Hasan Nawaz Sharif, as listed in the 2009 edition of the Who’s Who of Britain’s Young Business Elite – a copy of which was attached to the Sharifs’ statement – is indeed ‘Tower Bridge House, St Katherine’s Way, London’, contrary to the spokesman’s claims.
The statement also claims, “a property near Buckingham Palace valued at 4,450,000 pounds has nothing to do with the company”. It may be noted that the said property is still listed on the company website even as this report is being filed.
The statement does not contradict the facts of the published report in any way and concedes that most of the information contained in it already exists in the public domain.
