NAB will take all actions in national interest without influence: Chairman

Chairman NAB vows to continue accountability despite allegations

ISLAMABAD: Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Javed Iqbal has said that politicizing NAB for taking action against corruption is not in national interest.
Addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Sunday, he said the anti-graft body will take all steps required in national interest without taking any external pressure.
Chairman NAB said baseless propaganda is being made that business community is being harassed by the Bureau.
He said NAB never intervened into telegraphic transfers of any businessmen. However, NAB has the right to ask any person the source of income that holds public office.
He said NAB will take the cases of money laundering to their logical conclusion.
Javed Iqbal said NAB is a people friendly national institution and our job is to protect the business community.
He said he has directed all NAB regions to take immediate action on complaints received from business community.
However, he said no complaint has so far been received in this regard.
The Chairman said NAB strongly believes in respect of people and never disgraced any individual. He said NAB will never take dictation from any individual or institution.
