“Misuse of power and corruption was also used in the money laundering practice,” he stated.

He said the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) filed a petition in the case to hamper probe in the fake accounts case. To a question, he said it was better known to NAB whether to arrest Asif Ali Zardari. He, however, added that someone who didn’t take part in the investigation process was liable to be arrested.

He said Bilawal Bhutto and Murad Ali Shah denied having received any notice from NAB. “When a decision will be given against them, they will claim not being considered in the probe.”

He said the PPP wanted delay in proceedings in the fake accounts case.

Responding to another question, Shehzad Akbar said Nawaz Sharif was sent to three hospitals for treatment. “The former PM is not suffering from any serious cardiac problem. Though he has diabetic and blood pressure issues,” the PM’s adviser said.

Akbar said Nawaz Sharif was moved to Jinnah Hospital on recommendation of the medical board.
