Nawaz vows not to step back from NAB chairman issue

MULTAN: Expressing confidence in the leadership of Nawaz Sharif, senior politician Javed Hashmi has rejoined Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

The decision was taken during a meeting of the CEC held at Punjab House in the capital today, sources privy to this development told ARY News.

The World Bank has rejected Pakistani media reports about former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif laundering $4.9 billion to India.

The members condemned NAB's statement regarding launching a probe against the former prime minister based on a media report which alleged that he laundered a staggering $4.9 billion to India.

Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Friday said that revengeful and politically motivated actions against only one party by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) before elections amounts to pre-poll rigging and stealing the mandate of the people, therefore the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) should take a notice of it. He demanded an apology and resignation of Iqbal if NAB failed to do so.

Mr. Abbasi said the country would not function if the institutions work in this way, he added, pointing out that the National Assembly still has time to amend the NAB laws.

They also pledged that they would foil "every conspiracy and tactic against Nawaz Sharif through constitutional, legal and democratic struggle, which will continue until all stains of falsehood are erased through a show of massive public support", statement issued by the party read. "The engineers of the current situation should also be ready to find a solution".

The claims were shot down by the Washington-based World Bank on the same day as its local office denied that allegations were levelled against the PML-N leader in its remittance report.

It should be stated for the record that the notification in question had stated that NAB was examining complaints that the Sharif brothers had laundered money and had not made a direct accusation against them.

"The chairman NAB has levied ridiculous and absurd allegations that Sharif has laundered Rs4.98bn to India", the text added, "whereas the WB report clearly does not mention money laundering or Sharif's name".
