Former premier Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday failed to seem in NAB’s ongoing investigations in opposition to him the place he’s alleged to have misused authority throughout his tenure as petroleum minister.
Abbasi was summoned by the Nationwide Accountability Bureau (NAB) at its workplace with a questionnaire the anti-graft watchdog had given to him beforehand. Nevertheless, neither the previous PM appeared earlier than NAB nor did he submit the solutions to the questionnaire.
NAB officers claimed that delaying ways have been being employed by the accused to tug the case.
In the meantime, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) launched the questionnaire handed over to Abbasi from NAB on media.
The questionnaire seeks solutions from the ex-minister in seven completely different inquiries.
NAB is probing a case instituted in opposition to Abbasi in 2015 for allegedly awarding a LNG import contract at exorbitant charges, which brought about a possible $2 billion loss to the nationwide exchequer.
The case was registered on a grievance by Shahid Sattar – an power skilled and former member of the Planning Fee and the SSGC board of administrators – on July 29, 2015.
