Nawaz firm on taking on NAB over money laundering issue
ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif vowed to not step back on NAB money laundering allegations terming them as a ‘very serious’ matter.
Talking to journalists outside accountability court on Friday, the PML-N Quaid said what is happening today we never saw it even during military regimes.
Today, we have convened a meeting of party’s Central Executive Committee, top decision making body, to discuss this issue, the elder Sharif said.
Nawaz said he had discussed this with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi too.
Earlier this week, the accountability bureau said in a statement that the anti-graft body is verifying media reports that Nawaz Sharif had illegally transferred $4.9 billion to India helping New Dehli strengthen forex reserves.
