PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz wants to know who gave the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) the authority to check the statements of witnesses.

NAB is a slave to order, she said while speaking on Monday at Jati Umra in Lahore before a Lahore High Court hearing on NAB’s plea to cancel post-arrest bail granted to her in the Chauhdry Sugar Mills case.

Maryam said that it was said in the high court that “Maryam Nawaz is giving statements and her bail should be cancelled”.

“NAB is an institution of revenge,” Maryam said and called NAB’s claims that she was not cooperating in the watchdog’s investigation a “big lie”.

She said she was detained for three months and asked trivial questions.

“People can see that the government’s legs are shaking and your hands and feet are swollen, don’t fool the people,” she said.

“NAB is no longer an institution catching corruption, but an institution to harass [Prime Minister] Imran Khan’s opponents because he cannot compete in the field” Maryam said.
