Nawaz Sharif asks NAB chairman to resign over allegations against him
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has asked NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal to resign over allegations of money laundering against him.
Addressing a press conference at Pun jab House on Thursday, he said that the NAB chief should either bring evidence against him or quit after apologizing to him.
“The allegations leveled by the NAB against me are shameful and heinous,” he said.
The former prime minister said that he would neither apologize nor file the mercy plea if he was convicted.
Earlier interacting with reporters inside the accountability court hearing corruption cases against him, the former premier appreciated Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s statement on the NAB probe against him.
Nawaz said that the time has come to decide whether the country will be run by laws made by dictators or those made by democratic governments. Nawaz added that laws made by dictators need to be abolished.
In a light vein, the three-time prime minister said reports are circulating on social media that the reason for the Titanic’s sinking has been discovered, adding that it is being said that Nawaz Sharif is expected to be sent a notice for his role in the tragedy.
