NAB summons former PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in the fresh case

ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday summoned former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for questioning in connection with its fresh graft inquiry against him.

Abbasi has been directed to appear before NAB Rawalpindi on April 26 along with the record.

The inquiry pertains to alleged financial irregularities in Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) and the illegal appointment of Syed Wamiq Bokhari as its managing director.

Abbasi is alleged to play a role in the appointment of Bokhari during his stint as petroleum minister.

The PML-N leader is already facing two references instituted by the bureau.

Meanwhile, speaking to the media outside an accountability court in Islamabad on Thursday, Abbasi said the ruling PTI government has no policy while the public is going through a difficult time.

“Pakistan is the only country where people are getting vaccinated against coronavirus with their own money,” he claimed.

The government has been unable to buy a single coronavirus vaccine, the former PM continued, adding that a country like Pakistan with a population of 230 million people is vaccinating its people through charity.
