ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has concreted documentary evidence and witnesses against the leader of the opposition in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz Sharif in assets beyond means (TT case) which will be presented before the accountability court.
A spokesman of NAB rejected some media reports about Hamza Shahbaz said, the people propagating innocence of Hamza Shahbaz in media should better appear before the court and plead his innocence there as a defense witness.
He said the court is the relevant authority to decide about the fate of Hamza Shahbaz and the law will definitely take its own course in this regard. Regarding Hamza’s innocence, he said the Lahore High Court has already rejected the bail application of Hamza Shahbaz.
NAB would continue performing its duties sans caring about threats, browbeating and a baseless propaganda campaign.
Earlier, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders have demanded the release of Opposition Leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz from the custody of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
PML-N Spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb had alleged that the NAB was an institution of political engineering and raised questions on its investigative authority.
She said that the NAB has turned into a political institution as it is being used for political victimizations.
Marriyum Aurangzeb further said that the opposition leader had appeared before the court more than 50 times in relation to trumped-up charges.
The PML-N spokesperson said that so far the NAB has failed to find evidence of any corruption however, Hamza is still facing punishment.
She further said that no proceeding has been made following the release of the inquiry report of the wheat-sugar crisis.”Why is NAB not arresting those involved in a wheat-sugar crisis or Peshawar Metro’s corruption?” she asked.
