The National Accountability Bureau NAB has filed a second case against former prime minister of Pakistan and PMLN Leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
It filed the case in the illegal appoint of Imran-ul-Haq as PSO managing director in a Karachi accountability court.
The court issued non-bailable warrants for the arrest of Abbasi, who was then the petroleum minister, and former petroleum secretary Arshad Mirza.
It also issued notices to two Haq and Yaqoob Suttar. They have been directed to appear in court on April 10.
This is the second reference NAB has filed against Abbasi. The first reference, relating to LNG terminals, also mentioned Haq’s name and is still under trial.
Shahid khaqan Abbasi was released from jail on February 26 after being in NAB custody since his arrest in July 2019.
Earlier Shahid khaqan Abbasi said NAB a terrorist organisation.
Calling the bureau a “political engineering factory”, he said former chief justices have also questioned its practices. That is why we must end this institution and send these people packing, he said.
There are six stakeholders influencing decision making in Pakistan, said the former premier. If you don’t make them sit at the same table, the country wont be able to run, he said.
Abbasi denied having any conflicts with the PML-N. I am a member of the party and have been a prime minister from this party, he said.
