Bilawal won’t attend NAB proceedings due to prior commitments: Murtaza Wahab
KARACHI: In a letter addressed to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) by chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto, the party leader has expressed his failure to attend NAB proceedings on 17th May.
The Minister for Information Sindh, revealed that the party chairman has other appointments on the date and would hence fail to make it to the proceedings by the accountability watchdog.
“The party chief will fail to appear in front of NAB due to prior commitments,” said Murtaza Wahab.
“We urge NAB to reschedule the proceedings to next week.”

Wahab further revealed that the letter issued by NAB to the chairman of PPP had been received 5 days after it was sent.
The PPP chief had been served a notice to turn up at the Old NAB Rawalpindi Headquarters on May 17 where he was likely be questioned about the case. This was to be the second time he would’ve appeared before the bureau.
It is noteworthy that Mr Bhutto-Zardari has not yet responded to a questionnaire he was handed by the bureau during his first appearance before it in March this year.
According to sources, PPP co-chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari had given most of replies to the questions put forward to his son by the bureau’s investigation team. Mr Bhutto-Zardari had, therefore, been summoned alone this time.
