ISLAMABAD: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has strongly rejected malicious campaign of financial irregularities being launched on social media regarding two senior army officers i.e., Lt Gen Naweed Zaman and Lt Gen Sajjad Ghani.
NAB has categorically denied and clarified that there is no case against the above officers in NAB, now or ever before. Therefore, any allegation of plea bargain doesn’t arise.
Earlier, today an accountability court rejected a petition of former president Asif Ali Zardari for dismissal of the National Accountability Bureau in Park Lane reference against him and his acquittal.
The court also disallowed a petition of Zardari challenging jurisdiction of the accountability bureau.
The accountability watchdog had opposed the petition, after which the court had reserved its verdict over the matter.
Accountability Judge Azam Khan announced the court’s decision and also decided to indict Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur in the next hearing of the case on August 10.
