Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has demanded an independent and transparent investigation against Chairman of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Justice retired Javed Iqbal and demanded his removal from the office if proven guilty.
A statement from the commission has said that the allegations against chairman NAB levelled by a woman have been of grave concern for the HRCP demanding investigation and process in the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).
Tayyaba Gul had accused the PM office that her video was used to pressurize the NAB chief to get dropped from the accountability watchdog.
PAC chaired by Noor Alam Khan had heard the issue in which Gul testified under oath that inhuman treatment was carried out with her alleging that she was even strip-searched by NAB officials. She had told that her case was used by the PM office by blackmailing the NAB chairman by misuse of evidence for personal gains.
Gul had also allegedly testified that former PM Imran Khan and his principal secretary Azam Khan had invited her to PM’s office after she had lodged a complaint on the Citizen Portal.
PAC chairman has already demanded the suspension of Justice retired Javed Iqbal.
