Pakistan opposition slams anti-corruption agency in special session of Senate – world news

Pakistan’s opposition party attacked the matter of its performance and accountability process on Friday in the Senate’s National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Opposition members unilaterally rejected the process of responsibility and accused the government of using it to hunt opponents, Dunn reported.

Earlier, the opposition also accused the NAB of grave human rights violations, deaths in detention, and allegations used by the Imran Khan government to undermine the Pakistani Democratic Movement (PDM).

The NAB chairman allegedly was intimidated by the federal government after “immoral audio and video clips” were leaked. Some opposition senators have said he must obey all orders he receives through WhatsApp, Dawn reported.

“NAB has become a tool for the government to sacrifice opposition parties. This is why Maulana Fazlur Rehman said he would not appear as Director General,” said Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri, leader Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (F) (JUI-F).

“You can’t run a government by hiding behind the army and continuing to lie. Why do you bring troops into politics and defame them?” He added.

Senator Javed Abbasi of Pakistani Islamic League (Nawaz) (PML-N) said the NAB has changed into a Pakistani Tehreek-e-Insaf “(PTI) wing”.

“There have been several Supreme Court rulings that have emphasized the role of the NAB in political engineering and have forced politicians to change their loyalty,” he added.

Treasury members responded that the opposition party is trying to pressure the government to stop pursuing corruption cases against leaders who have accumulated wealth through commissions and rebates, laundered money and hid in foreign banks. dawn.

Meanwhile, on December 29th, former Foreign Minister and PML-N senior leader Khawaja Muhammad Asif was arrested by the NAB of Islamabad for assets beyond Sudan. (ANI)
