Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz has on Monday said that the opposition had proposed 34 out of 38 amendments in the National Accountability Ordinance to hide corruption of its leadership committed in the past.

While addressing a news conference in Islamabad, Shibli Faraz said the government will never offer any kind of NRO to the opposition.

He said the opposition proposed that NAB should not have powers to take up cases reported before 1999 and should only take notice of corruption cases reported in the last five years.

The Minister said another proposal is to change the definition of Benamidars, giving free hands to make corruption in the name of wife and children.

It was proposed to allow convicts to contest elections till final disposal of their cases and disqualification should be up to only five years, he added.

He said opposition desired to make redundant the international mutual legal assistance law and dealing it under law of evidence of Pakistan.

The minister said these amendments if incorporated will grant corrupt leaders of opposition an NRO plus, making the NAB practically dysfunctional.

The opposition attempted to create a divide among institutions responsible for country’s security, added Shibli Faraz.

He said things are improving in all sectors, which is evident from the fact that country’s exports are now increasing with every day.
