ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister and senior Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, on Tuesday, urged the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman to reveal how much money he had recovered from politicians in the Broadsheet case.

“It has been three years,” he continued, “but the loan commission report could not surface.”

Addressing media in Islamabad, along with former federal minister for planning and development Ahsan Iqbal, Abbasi said that as long as there was NAB, the affairs of the country could run.

“Either the accountability bureau [NAB] would run or the country,” he added.

While talking about PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz’s alleged leaked audio which apparently found her controlling media houses during her party tenure, Abbasi said that the authorities should take action if Maryam had broken any law.

“The country’s debt has climbed to over Rs50 billion as the government has made 70 per cent addition to it, but there is no report over it,” asked the PML-N leader.
