N's CEC decides to sue Chairman NAB Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader Nawaz Sharif on Thursday asked chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to present evidence in the money laundering allegations against him in 24 hours or tender resignation.

The PML-N's Central Executive Committee (CEC) on Friday strongly condemned National Accountability Bureau Chairman Javed Iqbal for allegedly ordering an inquiry against Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif for laundering money to India "based on an extremely irresponsible and totally false media report".

The NAB swung into action about two years after a private TV channel alleged that $4.9 billion was laundered from Pakistan to India in 2016, according to a report by the Express Tribune.

"It is NAB's duty to answer all my questions within 24 hours and address these reservations".

While addressing the CEC meeting, Nawaz Sharif said that he rejects the explanation of the Chairman NAB.

"NAB's approach is weakening democracy", claimed Nawaz.

However, he fell out of party's favour after opposing publicly the party's decision to hold mass protests against then PM Nawaz Sharif and subsequently resigned from both the party and the Parliament.

The NAB statement was also quashed by the World Bank, stating that its Remittances and Migration Report did not mention money laundering or name individuals.

She said neither the constitution nor any law allowed a "license to shame" to any state institution.

The minister said that the PML-N would go into the 2018 polls with the slogan of "give respect to vote" and seek the mandate of the people on the basis of its performance, adding that the people once again would give a heavy mandate to the PML-N and the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

It is expected that the resolution will be taken up in the next assembly session on Monday.
