Shehzad Iqbal in “Awaz” covered these topics
Director General National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore Shahzad Saleem said on Wednesday that it has substantial evidence against former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif, adding that the investigation in the Ashiana Housing Scheme scam and other cases is in “final phase”.
In an interview with Shehzad Iqbal, NAB DG Saleem Shehzad said that, “former CM Punjab Shehbaz Sharif lies when he says he has not committed a corruption of even a single penny.”
The NAB official added that the case against Shehbaz Sharif has a lot of substance. Moreover, he accused Saad Rafique of using his influence on the prosecutor’s witnesses.
Shehbaz, who was arrested by NAB on October 5 in the Ashiana Housing case, told the court that he has been investigated for more than a month now but not even a penny’s worth of corruption could be proven against him.
An accountability court in Islamabad on Tuesday extended his transit remand till November 10 in the case.

In a tweet on Thursday, Fawad Chaudhry said that Asia Bib Case is a sensitive issue and it was extremely irresponsible to publish news of her leaving the Country without confirmation.
