Former chairman of the National Insurance Company Limited (NICL) Ayaz Khan Niazi has said he has done nothing wrong nor will he flee the country.
“I have full confidence in the judiciary and I will be acquitted in all cases instituted against me.”
Talking to The Express Tribune Niazi said:
“The Supreme Court had not placed my name on the Exit Control List (ECL). The government had put me on the ECL. A medical board was constituted for me on the orders of the Supreme Court. On the basis of the medical board’s reports I was admitted to a hospital. Citing the medical board’s reports I had applied for permission to visit Bangladesh for treatment. Since there was delay in getting an appointment with the relevant physician, I had to postpone my journey. When I reached Bangladesh and after undergoing medical examination I returned to Pakistan after a two-day stay there.”
