Lahore, Dec 20 (ANI): Accountability in Pakistan had always been used as a weapon of vengeance, said Mushahid Hussain Syed, Secretary General of the Pakistan Muslim League (Quaid).
He further said that neither his partys government nor the previous governments held genuine accountability.
Mushahid admitted that cases against the Sharif brothers and former premier Benazir Bhutto were politically motivated.
“Most of the cases against these leaders are politically motivated, except some corruption cases against Benazir,” he said.
Mushahid added that the National Accountability Bureau should not be under the governments control.
It (NAB) should be controlled by the Parliament, the Daily Times quoted Mushahid, as saying.
Terming the governments decision to impose emergency on November 3 as “unfortunate and a mistake”, he said that he and some of his party leaders had opposed the move. (ANI)
