Earlier, the NAB had refuted the scandalous audio and video aired by a private news channel against the bureau’s chief, labeling the video libelous, propagandist and fake.
Chairman NAB Justice retired Javed Iqbal has issued a press release via the National Accountability Bureau debunking all claims, labeling it an attempt to blackmail the institute over ongoing corruption investigations against the organization.
A local tv aired the audio and video clips of his alleged inappropriate interactions/conversation with a female.
The woman in the video alleged that she had been threatened with NAB inquiries if she failed to follow suit to Iqbal’s wishes.
