KARACHI: Senior Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader and former president Asif Ali Zardari’s brother-in-law Munawar Talpur today filed a petition against the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the Sindh High Court (SHC).

The plaintiff alleged that the NAB officials are continuously harassing him and he fears that NAB might arrest him as he was issued a notice for alleged involvement in corruption.

National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is one of the country’s most important institutions entrusted with rooting out corruption.

On one hand NAB comes under intense pressure by the opposition parties for its lenience toward investigating cases against government, and on the other hand if they do dare scrutinize such cases, they get scolded by the highest officials in the government.

Previously, the National Accountability Bureau had provided the Supreme Court of Pakistan with a total of 150 ‘mega corruption’ cases worth billions of rupees.

The documents provided include corruption cases against the likes of the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Chief Minister Punjab Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and many other prominent personalities.
