PML-N mulls legal action against NAB chief over money laundering allegations
ISLAMABAD - The embattled Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz discussed on Friday to initiate legal proceedings against the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman over the money-laundering probe against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

The participants at PML-N's central executive committee was of the opinion that as the 24-hour deadline had passed, without an apology or resignation of Justice (r) Javed Iqbal, the party should pursue the case on the legal front.

The members condemned NAB's statement regarding launching a probe against the former prime minister based on a media report which alleged that he laundered a staggering $4.9 billion to India.

During the meeting, the supreme leader of ruling Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz condemned the latest NAB probe against him.

"NAB chairman is taking revenge in the name of accountability as it has turned into a prejudiced department." declared the former PM.

On Thursday, Nawaz had demanded the NAB chairman to present proof of the charges within 24 hours or go home, however, NAB clarified that it was not a crime to question corrupt practices.

The NAB statement was also quashed by the World Bank, stating that its Remittances and Migration Report did not mention money laundering or name individuals.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif, PML-N Chairman Senator Raja Zafarul Haq, cabinet member Sardar Mehtab Abbasi and National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq attended the meeting.
