ISLAMABAD: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal has said that if the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly, Shahbaz Sharif, could face anti-graft body probe, then Prime Minister Imran Khan also does not have immunity from it.

Addressing a ceremony, he said it was top priority of NAB to take the cases of mega corruption to their logical end. He stressed that NAB believed in ‘work, work and work” under the provided law.

Iqbal said the performance of the NAB Lahore in particular had a key role in the overall performance of the agency.

Commenting on Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry’s remarks that NAB inquiry against the prime minister was an insult to the chief executive. “People are naive to think NAB has insulted the premier. In fact the case against Imran Khan shows the supremacy of law in Pakistan, and it has increased the honour of the Prime Minister.”

The NAB chief said that it was general impression across the world that Pakistan is serious and striving to end corruption. He paid rich tribute to Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar and all other justice for bringing the rule of law in Pakistan.

The information minister has repeated that nowhere in the world does a prime minister is asked questions about such a frivolous matter like the use of helicopter of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government. This process must end quickly otherwise it will continue to send a negative message in the world, he said.
