What has NAB chairman done that is wrong: Kaira

NAB summons Hamza Shehbaz in Punjab Saaf Pani Company corruption case

A statement by the NAB, which ordered the inquiry based on a media report, claimed that the amount was laundered to the Indian finance ministry after which Indian foreign exchange reserves witnessed an increase and Pakistan suffered as a result, reported Pakistan's Geo News. The column highlighted the laundering by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and others. He pointed out that the NAB claims were shot down by the Washington-based multilateral agency on the same day as its local office denied that allegations were levelled against the PML-N leader in its remittance report.

"NAB hasn't started an investigation against Nawaz or filed a reference", Kaira said, adding that it is Nawaz's policy to fight the institutions and create clashes between them. "Therefore, the evidence even prima facie should be sought from the NAB chairman and facts should be presented before the parliament and the masses". "Failing to do so, the NAB should apologise to the nation and the chairman should resign", Sharif demanded.

The NAB chief defended his department and said anti-corruption drive will continue without any favour or prejudice to anybody.

Sharif, who stepped down from the country's top office following his disqualification by Supreme Court previous year, added that severity of the allegations could not be ignored.

"Politicians and bureaucrats don't need to take offence when summoned by NAB", he added.

Reaffirming his view about not tolerating corruption anymore, Chairman NAB Iqbal said that whatever the anti-corruption bureau was doing was doing so in best in best interest of the state.

"The report does not include any mention of money laundering nor does it name any individuals", said the World Bank, which was issued after media reports cited its annual report for allegations that Sharif laundered Dollars 4.9 billion from Pakistan to India.

According to Dawn, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi strongly criticised the NAB for launching the probe and asked the National Assembly to constitute a committee which would summon the NAB Chairman Justice Javed Iqbal and investigate the allegations. If convicted, Sharif could face jail time.
