Gen. Bajwa Blocked Graft Cases Against ‘Thieves’: Imran

Former Pakistani prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan has accused former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa of controlling the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), saying he blocked the conclusion of corruption cases against “thieves” during his government’s tenure. “NAB would tell us that the cases were matured but they were not being allowed to conclude them,” the deposed premier said. “General Bajwa was not allowing them (NAB)… he was sitting behind and would decide who should be released (from NAB custody) or suppressed,” he added. Imran said then opposition leader and incumbent prime minister Shehbaz Sharif’s money laundering case was an “open and shut” one. “His (PM Shehbaz)case was not listed for hearing… I was prime minister but I was completely helpless.” The former PM said law of jungle was prevailing in the country “as all the thieves have gathered and are now shutting down their corruption cases”. Imran reiterated his allegations that his government was toppled by “buying conscience” of lawmakers, reports The Express Tribune.
