Lahore: Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz said the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) violated court’s decision by raiding his Model Town residence on Friday.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader talked to media and condemned the operation. He said the way the NAB raided our house made us feel that we are terrorists. I always appear whenever the court and the NAB summon.
The NAB team has gone against the verdict of the Lahore High Court (LHC) by coming to arrest me like a ‘superman’, he said.
The court had given orders to notify ten days before arrest, and the incursion is contempt of its decision, he said asking what the need of taking such a step was.
The PML-N leader also bashed Prime Minister Imran Khan and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government. The court had allowed me to travel abroad for the treatment of my ailing daughter and Imran Khan did politics on her health, he added.
He stated that Pakistan’s economy is crumbling and people are suffering. Peshawar metro is still incomplete even after spending one billion rupees, he said. “Nothing can be proven against Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif,” Hamza affirmed.
“We are standing with the nation, he continued, lies and fake promises of the incumbent government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will soon dissolve it,” he said.
Let it be known that the National Accountability Bureau conducted an unsuccessful raid at the Model Town residence of Hamza Shahbaz for involvement in money laundering.
According to NAB, the team has evidence and arrest warrant against Hamza. The security guards stopped the team outside the house after which harsh words were exchanged.
Afterwards, the officials left without arresting anyone due to severe resistance by the guards.
