PM Nawaz had not refused to probe corruption cases, clarifies spokesman
The official maintained that the statement of prime minister during his visit to the New Islamabad Airport was quoted out of context.
He said the prime minister was asked about investigations into mega corruption cases registered in previous governments.
"The prime minister had said that probe against the elements involved in corruption during previous governments should be taken to its logical conclusion," the spokesman reminded.
The spokesperson noted that there was a rule of law in the country and all the institutions were working within constitutional limits.
The official endorsed claims of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that no corruption scandal surfaced during the current stint of PML-N.
The clarification came in the purview of premier's statement, which he made on Saturday after inaugurating Metro bus link route.
“There are so many corruption cases that the more you try to count them, the harder it seems.” He added, “But one day, those behind these cases will meet their fate,” and asked “In this country, so many cases of corruption and embezzlement need investigation – which one should be probed first?”
