ISLAMABAD: Important changes are expected in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) as preparations are being made to file a reference against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
According to reports, preparations are being made to keep DG NAB Rawalpindi away from the entire matter of the reference.
Mirza Nasir Beg is counted as a close friend of former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on whose recommendation he was sent on a deputation of NAB.
It is probable that DG NAB Balochistan Irfan Mangi will be appointed as DG NAB Rawalpindi. Meanwhile, the remaining term of employment of NAB Chairman Qamar-uz-Zaman Chaudhry is two months and ten days.
The Supreme Court of Pakistan has issued orders to have a reference filed against Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, Hassan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz and Ishaq Dar within six months.
