ISLAMABAD: The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has summoned its next session on January 6 for an in-camera briefing of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman Justice Retired Javed Iqbal.
Rana Tanveer said that it will be an in-camera session in which the committee summoned details of recoveries from the NAB.
The NAB chairman Justice Retired Javed Iqbal reached Parliament House Tuesday and appeared before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).
Upon arriving at the Parliament House, the NAB chairman Javed Iqbal told the reporters that the importance of the parliament is obvious. He added that he failed to appear before the parliament due to his busy schedule.
Iqbal said that the comments of those persons who are facing corruption cases did not bother him. He rejected the allegations of ‘selective accountability’.
During the Public Accounts Committee’s session being chaired by Rana Tanveer, the PAC chairman welcomed the National Accountability Bureau chairman in the session.
Javed Iqbal said that the supremacy of the parliament is obvious and he realised the fact that he did not appear one or two times despite being summoned due to legitimate reasons.
“I’m not a Mughal monarch who keeps right not to appear before the Parliament. I had always appeared before the PAC and considered it as an honour for me. I will also appear in future whenever being summoned.” – NNI
