ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister adviser Shahzad Akbar on Friday rejected the accusations of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) pertaining to the meeting with Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing Asif Ali Zardari.
Clarifying his position, he has termed his meetings with Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and National Accountability Bureau (NAB) as a routine matter.
While responding to the queries of PPP’s Saeed Ghani and Sherry Rehman, Shehzad asserted that no meeting was held with JIT on December 19.
“Meetings with FIA, NAB and FBR are held now and then. These are the part of the government’s unit recovering illegal assets,” he declared.
Speaking on the floor of the House, Senator Sherry Rehman raised the issue of Shahzad Akbar’s meeting with JIT members at FIA’s office and questioned its timing ahead of former President Asif Ali Zardari’s hearing in the banking court.
Angry PPP leaders have demanded to stop revenge in the name of accountability.
