Bilawal won’t attend NAB proceedings due to prior commitments: Murtaza Wahab


KARACHI, May 15 (DNA): In a letter addressed to the National
Accountability Bureau (NAB) by chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP)
Bilawal Bhutto, the party leader has expressed his failure to attend NAB
proceedings on 17th May.

The Minister for Information Sindh, revealed that the party chairman has
other appointments on the date and would hence fail to make it to the
proceedings by the accountability watchdog.

“The party chief will fail to appear in front of NAB due to prior
commitments,” said Murtaza Wahab. “We urge NAB to reschedule the
proceedings to next week.”

Wahab further revealed that the letter issued by NAB to the chairman of
PPP had been received 5 days after it was sent.

The PPP chief had been served a notice to turn up at the Old NAB
Rawalpindi Headquarters on May 17 where he was likely be questioned
about the case. This was to be the second time he would’ve appeared
before the bureau.

It is noteworthy that Mr Bhutto-Zardari has not yet responded to a
questionnaire he was handed by the bureau during his first appearance
before it in March this year.

According to sources, PPP co-chairman and former president Asif Ali
Zardari had given most of replies to the questions put forward to his
son by the bureau’s investigation team. Mr Bhutto-Zardari had,
therefore, been summoned alone this time.
