Islamabad: Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal has said that if Opposition leader in the National Assembly could face anti-graft body probe, then Prime Minister also does not have immunity from it and his summons will further add respect to his office rather insult.
He made these views while addressing a ceremony on Thursday.
He said it was the top priority of NAB to take the cases of mega corruption to their logical end as NAB believed in ‘work, work and work” under the provided law.
He said the performance of NAB Lahore, in particular, had a key role in the overall performance of NAB.
Commenting on Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry’s remarks that NAB case was an insult to Prime Minister, Javed Iqbal said, “People are naive to think NAB has insulted the premier.”
He continued, “In fact, the case against PM Imran Khan shows the supremacy of law in Pakistan, and it has increased the honour of the Prime Minister.”
It is general impression across the world that Pakistan is serious and striving to end corruption. He paid rich tribute to Chief Justice of Pakistan and all other justice for bringing the rule of law in the country.
