PTI demands NAB investigations against former CJP Iftikhar Chaudhry in corruption cases
LAHORE: Fawad Chaudhry, leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), had demanded from the National Accountability Bureau to start investigation of alleged corruption of former Supreme Court chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry.
Fawad Chaudhry made this demand while addressing to a press conference on Monday. Chaudhry blamed that the family of Iftikhar Chaudhry is involved in fraud and should be made accountable for their wrongdoing.
He questioned that how Iftikhar Chaudhry owns so many properties when he announced that he was not taking any salary during his tenure as the top judge.
Earlier, former chief justice and head of Pakistan Justice and Democratic Party, has challenged the nomination papers of several PTI candidates, including party chief Imran Khan.
PTI spokesperson also showed reservations over the caretaker Punjab government’s recent postings and transfers of the bureaucracy along the GT Road and alleged that the district police officers and deputy commissioners posted are sympathetic to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.
He added that the caretaker government did not do its homework while undertaking the recent transfers and called for the Punjab chief secretary and inspector general to review their decisions, “otherwise we’ll go to ECP (Election Commission of Pakistan”.
The PTI leader also called for the registration of a case against former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for allegedly helping absconding former finance minister Ishaq Dar flee the country in his plane.
