LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shehbaz on Thursday rebuked the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials for tapping millions through plea bargains.
Addressing the media, the PML-N veteran lashed out at the anti-graft body over its policies causing economic upheaval.
“Plea bargains are not fair. Every official from the bureau embezzles huge sums of money through it,” he claimed. The PML-N leader reiterated that nobody had been able to prove corruption charges against himself, Nawaz, and Shehbaz Sharif.
“Imran should fear the day NAB foments corruption scandals against him,” he added.
Comparing Malik Mansha Khokar alias Mansha Bomb and the accountability bureau, the Opposition Leader said that there was no difference between the two. “Both function the same way,” he said.
On the plight of a common man, Hamza said that inflation is at an all-time high, adding that investors were no longer interested in trade with Pakistan.
