‘Those Targeting NAB Chairman Will Account For Their Doings’: Pervaiz Elahi On Video Scandal
Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Parvez Elahi on Wednesday said that those have vested motives against National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chief Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal will not succeed in their ‘deplorable’ objectives.
Sharing his views over the NAB chairman fiasco, Pervaiz Elahi said that Javed Iqbal wants to strengthen NAB because he knows strengthened institutions will strengthen the country. He further said that elements hostile towards the country are resorting to different tactics to undermine the prestige of national institutions.
Elahi said that those targeting the NAB chairman will not succeed in their ‘deplorable’ motives and that they will account for their doings.
He said that Chairman NAB has a principled, honest, prestigious and strong personality and that those targeting him so he leaves won’t succeed because he will stay and give the corrupt what they deserve.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Saturday filed a reference in an accountability court against central characters behind an audio-video scandal of its chairman Javed Iqbal.
The reference filed by the anti-corruption watchdog comprised 630 pages, which nominated the woman seen and heard in the audio-video scandal, Tayyaba Gul, and Farooq Nol.
It said the group blackmailed several individuals, including the NAB chief, adding that the group defrauded the citizens of over Rs24.4 million.
The NAB said that it received six complaints against Gul and Nol, and 36 witnesses recorded their statements against them.
The accountability court while issuing notices to the accused and investigating officer, summoned them on June 17.
