Fawad criticizes opposition’s privilege motion against DG NAB


ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry Friday criticised the opposition for submitting a privilege motion against DG NAB, calling it an “attempt to influence” an ongoing investigation by the National Accountability Bureau.
He was commenting on a privilege motion against DG NAB Lahore over his TV interviews, submitted by the opposition in National Assembly
Chaudhry said, “It is not appropriate to move a privilege motion on an ongoing investigation. The motion is an attempt to influence the investigation.”
Citing a breach of the privilege of the members of the opposition in the National Assembly, the opposition submitted a motion, objecting what it called the “media trial” of the opposition members and urged “immediate intervention” of the House.
The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) supported the motion submitted by PML-N. PPP leader Naveed Qamar said, “If we allow media trials now then the process will continue. Today, it is PML-N leaders and tomorrow it will be someone else.”
