Why NAB chickened out and postponed Maryam Nawaz appearance in illegal land acquisition case?
It should not have and given a “moral victory” to her. She is now gloating as she made NAB frightened.
What possible action PMLN or PDM could have taken against law enforcement agencies?
Nothing as PMLN is “a party that doesn’t know how to do street protest”. It is only good at staying in government. In opposition it cries.
PML-N Vice Preside before NAB in two Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday said it postponed March 26 appearance of Maryam because of threat of Covid-19 and in “public interest”.
NAB had summoned Maryam on Friday as part of two probes — a money laundering investigation in connection with the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case, and another related to 148 kanals of land that she allegedly purchased in Lahore illegally.
NAB said: “A high-level NAB meeting was held to review the situation and the recent instructions issued by the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) in view of the ongoing third coronavirus wave in the country.
“The meeting was informed that the NCOC has placed a complete ban on the gathering of all sorts of crowds,” a press release issued by NAB Lahore said.
It recalled that at Maryam’s last appearance before the bureau, the NAB Lahore building had been subjected to “deliberate intense stone-pelting”, which was akin to “creating an obstacle” in the NAB investigation.
NAB had summoned Maryam in August last year, but clashes between PML-N workers and police broke out outside its Lahore office.
NAB should not make any more excuses and go ahead with it’s responsibility. PAK DESTINY
