LAHORE: Former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan responded to a National Accountability Bureau (NAB) call-up notice in the £190 million National Crime Agency scam on Thursday.
Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi were summoned to NAB Rawalpindi today for questioning in connection with the National Crime Agency’s £190 million scandal.
Imran Khan demanded that the NAB deliver him an inquiry report, citing the turning of an inquiry into a probe as a violation of NAB law.
“I’m currently in Lahore to secure bail in various cases on IHC orders until May 22, so I cannot appear before NAB in person,” Imran Khan responded.
According to PTI head, the NAB call-up notice is ‘illegal,’ and no “corrupt practices” have been discovered. Khan claimed that the purpose of turning the inquiry into a probe was to politically victimize him.
According to NAB law, the accused must be handed the investigation report so that he or she can defend himself or herself. “The documents requested by the NAB are not available to me,” he responded.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had begun an investigation into Imran Khan, Bushra Bibi, and others for the alleged acquisition of hundreds of canals of land in the name of Al Qadir University Trust, resulting in a 190-million-pound loss to the national exchequer.
According to the charges, Khan and others accused allegedly modified Rs50 billion
190 million pounds at the time provided to the government by Britain’s National Crime Agency (NCA).
On December 26, 2019, former Prime Minister Imran Khan established the Al-Qadir University Trust.
