According to media reports, the bureau has requested its chairman to issue an arrest warrant. Under the new ordinance, Usman Buzdar can be arrested during the inquiry stage. The NAB refused to receive a response from Usman Buzdar’s lawyer on his client’s non-appearance. The lawyer had said Buzdar cannot appear before the NAB’s Lahore office.
