Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader Nawaz Sharif said on Thursday asked chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to present evidence in the money laundering allegations against him in 24 hours or tender resignation.
Speaking at a press conference, Nawaz presented his concerns over NAB’s press release issued on May 8. He asserted that NAB chairman has made the former premier’s character assassination and media trial his mission.
“I have pointed towards the biased attitude of NAB several times. Chairman NAB’s press release confirmed my statements. The report of World Bank was made the foundation of the case while distorting the facts,” he asserted.
“A three-time prime minister has been accused of transferring $4.9bn to Indian exchequer and committed money laundering. The nature of the allegation is serious and shameful. Ignoring it means to risk the democratic system,” said Nawaz.
