It said that NAB Chairman Lt Gen (retd) Nazir Ahmed has been sent a Rs15 billion damages notice. The notice was sent by PTI Chairman’s lawyer Abu Zar Salman Niazi.

PTI also said in the tweet that Imran Khan’s arrest warrant was issued on May 1 but after the warrant was issued, that was kept secret for 8 days. It said that Imran Khan was arrested by Rangers on May 9 as a terrorist or a member of a banned organization, and the arrest warrants were illegal as per Section 24 of NAB Ordinance.

It further said that the Supreme Court of Pakistan had declared Imran Khan’s arrest illegal and unconstitutional, NAB chairman violated Imran Khan’s fundamental constitutional rights and deliberately took illegal action which shows his malice.
