Bilawal Bhutto Summoned By NAB In JV Opal Corruption Case
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Thursday in a corruption case pertaining to Joint Venture (JV) Opal 255.
The accountability watchdog has also asked the PPP chairman to bring records of Zardari Group of Companies between years 2008 and 2019.
In the case, Bilawal Bhutto is accused of misusing an amount of Rs1.22 billion from a fake bank account for his personal company. During the investigation, Bilawal Bhutto had maintained that he was a child when the transaction was made. But according to reports, the documents bear his signatures.
Meanwhile, the PPP chairman’s sister Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari has condemned the development and said it was meant to avenge Bilawal’s stand against inflation.
In response to his consistent stand against mehengai and increasing poverty, PTI’s strongman NAB conveniently summons @BBhuttoZardari yet again. The same NAB that somehow still holds authority above courts and elected representatives.
