ISLAMABAD, Oct 11 (APP):National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday termed the allegations leveled by daily Dawn as baseless, contrary to the facts and concocted.
A spokesman of NAB said in a statement that the editorial published on October 8, 2019 in the newspaper used derogatory language against NAB saying a prestigious newspaper like Dawn founded by Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah must think before using derogatory language against NAB. Father of the nation termed corruption and nepotism a curse.
“NAB strongly condemns editorial of Dawn and hopes that the newspaper would not only publish NAB’s clarification prominently on same space and avoid baseless and contrary to fact propaganda in future, which is its legal and moral responsibility,” he said.
Dawn has hurled the allegations against an institution whose officers consider eradication of corruption as their national duty. The bureau officers under the leadership of Justice Javed Iqbal were striving hard to eradicate the menace of corruption from the country, he said.
