‘Are you untouchable?’ Shahzad Akbar asks after Bilawal takes issue with being summoned by NAB
Statesman Report
ISLAMABAD: The government and PPP were at odds on Thursday following Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s appearance before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to record his statement in the fake accounts and money laundering case.
The PPP chairperson appeared before the bureau after being summoned three times. According to the anti-graft watchdog, Bilawal has 25 per cent shares in the private firm Opal-225, a joint venture of Zardari Group.
Addressing a press conference after his appearance, the PPP chairperson had raised questions about why he was asked to appear before the accountability watchdog. Meanwhile, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Accountability Shahzad Akbar asked if the PPP leader was so “untouchable” that an institution couldn’t call him in for questioning.
