He said that the Prime Minister and opposition leader can remove Javed Iqbal through consultation, but Imran Khan does not wish so. “The NAB chairman is an honest man and the anti-graft body needs such a person,” Naseem said. “The government has neither pressurised the NAB, nor will it do so.”
The minister said that reports have been surfacing that the viral video of the woman is fake, adding, “The husband and wife intend to make inquiry against them controversial”. He also said that there was nothing controversial about a recent interview of the NAB chief. “An impartial and honest person should be given a chance,” Naseem concluded.
The anti-graft body had dismissed the the contents of the story on its chairman, describing it to be “against the facts, fabricated and based on lies”. “This is a group of blackmailers aiming to damage the repute of the NAB, chairman NAB,” it said, adding that the watchdog has apprehended two individuals, “despite pressure”.
