ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on May 17 in the Park Lane case
This will be Bilawal’s second appearance before NAB after he was summoned along with his father, former president Asif Ali Zardari on March 20.
During that appearance, NAB said that Bilawal and Asif Ali Zardari were questioned by the combined investigation team under the supervision of DG NAB Rawalpindi Irfan Mangi for approximately two hours in three cases.
NAB also handed a questionnaire to the two on the three cases and informed them that this should be submitted to the CIT within 10 days.
Speaking to party workers after his appearance, Bilawal said that NAB was created for political engineering.
“It was our fault and weakness and we did not change this dark [NAB] law during our tenure in government.”
“The case for which I was summoned, I became a shareholder of that company when I was younger than one year old. These people are starting my accountability from that age.”
Furthermore, taking to Twitter on Tuesday, the PPP chairman criticised the accountability bureau in Urdu, saying that he knew who was behind his family’s troubles and that they would combat them just as his last three generations had.
“Yeh jo NABgardi hai, is kay peechay ham jantay kon hain. 3 naslon say inkay maqabla kartay aien hain, ab nahi ruknay walay,” he tweeted.
