NAB Using All Resources to Keep Nawaz Sharif in Jail over Bogus Charges: Abbasi

The only way one can protect himself from the NAB probe is joining the government as accountability is for the PML-N only, said party’s Senior Vice-President Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday.

The former prime minister said NAB was using all of its resources to ensure that Nawaz Sharif remained in jail over bogus charges.

“The only propose of NAB is to defame politicians and level baseless allegations against them. How can the country run if politicians are always targeted,” said the veteran political leader.

Talking to media, Abbasi said it was distressing to see how the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was conducting itself over the last few days.

Abbasi said NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal claimed that Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif were seeking a deal and ready to return money. “Either the NAB chairman is lying or the interviewer but in both cases, politicians are being defamed,” he said.

There is no truth into PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif meeting with NAB Chairman Javed Iqbal, he added.

“I’ve even heard rumours that Nawaz Sharif has agreed to pay a hefty amount to NAB and a reference was filed against Fawad Hasan Fawad for trying to set it up,” the PML-N leader said.

Abbasi criticised the anti-graft watchdog, saying: “It has even taken our bureaucracy hostage.”

Abbasi said the NAB chairman also remarked that that Ahad Cheema’s arrogance took him to the task. “One shouldn’t be arrogant but is arrogance a national crime,” the former prime minister questioned.

He added:”It is sad to say that NAB is not an autonomous body and is being used as the government’s instrument to keep all opposition leaders behind bars.”

The former premier said it was ironic to note that Aleem Khan received immediate bail, while Ahad Cheema despite several efforts wasn’t able to secure it.

“The character assassination campaign must stop now,” he said. “The economy is in tatters and a big share of responsibility for it rests with the NAB.”
