KARACHI: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has threatened on Monday that NAB did not has the courage to arrest him as he will become more dangerous after the arrest.
NAB had asked him to appear before an investigation team at its Rawalpindi office on December 24. The watchdog is probing into a transfer of Rs1.22 billion to JV Opal from an account of Zardari Group of Companies.
Addressing a press conference in Karachi, Bilawal accused the government of creating obstacles in his party’s plans to observe former prime minister Benazir Bhutto’s death anniversary on Dec 27.
His presser came just hours after senior PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal was arrested by NAB in the Narowal Sports City (NSC) Project corruption case.
Bilawal said he had been repeatedly announcing that the PPP would observe Benazir’s death anniversary on Dec 27 in Rawalpindi, where she was assassinated.
He accused the government of “preventing a son from observing the death anniversary of his mother”.
Bilawal owns 25% shares in Zardari Group. His father and PPP co-chairman, Asif Ali Zardari, and aunt, Faryal Talpur, also have shares in the business enterprise.
