National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal during his address at the NAB Lahore headquarters on Thursday (Jan 10) said that every politician, whether they belonged to opposition or treasury, stood equal before the accountability bureau and Prime Minister Imran Khan doesn’t enjoy immunity from investigation.
PM Imran will have to face investigation in the misuse of helicopter of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government, which allegedly caused losses to the national exchequer. “People are naive to think that we have insulted prime minister. In fact the case against him shows the supremacy of law in Pakistan, and it has increased the honour of premier,” he said. “If the leader of the opposition can face such probes then the premier also doesn’t have the immunity from NAB probe.”
“NAB is not under pressure since day one from giving concession to the members of treasury benches. Even if such pressure comes, NAB won’t bow down,” he said. NAB chairman’s statement came after Information Minister Fawad Chaudhary’s remarks that NAB is insulting PM Imran.
