Shahzad Akbar, NAB chairman should be placed on ECL, demands Shahid Khaqan Abbasi

LAHORE (92 News) – PML-N leader Shahid Khaqqan Abbasi has said that Prime Minister’s Office does not have any right to interfere in the working of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) or the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

Talking to the media on Thursday, the PML-N leader said that names of former Adviser to the Prime Minister on Accountability Shehzad Akbar and NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal should be placed on the Exit Control List (ECL). “These people are involved in the Broadsheet scam and have devoured billions of rupees of the masses. British journalist had accsued Shehbaz Sharif of corruption, but court freed him with dignity. How much money has been spent on investigations against Shehbaz Sharif?” he questioned.

Shahid Khaqqan Abbasi said that the elections should be held after the no-confidence movment. “Not a single case of corruption has been proved against Nawaz Sharif from 2013 to 2018,” he maintained.

He said that the PPP is part of the opposition. “We are together in the parliament. When a government could not resolve problems of people, then it starts lying,” he concluded.

The PML-N leader claimed that the Punjab government was most corrupt one in the country.
