Former prime minister Imran Khan has challenged the recently amended National Accountability Bureau law by the Shehbaz Sharif-led coalition government in Supreme Court on the pretext that it could “virtually eliminate” offences committed by public office holders.
The coalition government has recently amended the NAB law sending a wave of anger across the entire PTI leadership. It showed reservations and stated that the move could end the precedent of trying the corrupt politicians in the court.
However, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz contended that the cases against its leadership would not be dropped and the move was not aimed at putting an end to the practice of holding the public office holders accountable.
It is pertinent to mention here that the PTI and PML-N have been at loggerheads with both sides accusing each other of corruption, time and again.
