ISLAMABAD: Former president and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Asif Zali Zardari said on Tuesday that Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal doesn’t have the right to give an interview.
“He [Chairman NAB] does not have the right to give an interview. His post does not allow him to do this. We will take action against it,” Zardari told reporters outside the accountability court on Tuesday.
“The law says the accused is the favourite child of the court unless there is proof of guilt. Right now no one is guilty and you [NAB] are placing people in handcuffs, drag the elderly to jail and then say run the economy,” the former president added.
Asif Ali Zardari and his Faryal Talpur appeared before the accountability court with the hearing of the fake accounts case being adjourned till May 30. The court did not set a date for the indictment of Zardari and Talpur as the accused were not provided copies of the reference against them.
