ISLAMABAD: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice (R) Javed Iqbal has been informed that a person, namely Rizwan, is posing himself as chairman’s private secretary and issuing instructions to different accused persons of NAB and deponents on telephone, which is far from reality and also such instructions could not be passed on telephone.

According to NAB spokesman, the chairman has already issued instructions that accused or deponents involved in any case must not be contacted on telephone or summoned.

Most of the telephone calls were relating to recently filed LNG Reference.

The NAB’s announcement stated that main aim of these telephone calls were to malign NAB as an institution and criticize the office of chairman, which NAB condemns strictly and expressed that any person named Rizwan was not private secretary of the NAB chairman.

The accused of NAB and deponents hereby asked to avoid answering any phone call of and in case of receiving any such call they should immediately contact Spokesman of NAB so that legal proceedings could be initiated against the relevant persons as per law.

It may also be conveyed that NAB chairman does not talk to any accused or deponent on telephone and officers of NAB are also not allowed to talk to any accused person on telephone.
