ISLAMABAD: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Thursday clarified a news item titled ‘NAB is harsh with the opposition and partial with the government’, published in Daily Jang and The News as concocted, fabricated and contrary to the facts.

A NAB spokesman said in a statement that the author of the story Tariq Butt is a senior journalist but he did not bother to get the version of NAB before publishing the story.

Tariq Butt’s word in the story ‘NAB intends to continue its anti-terrorism campaign’ attributes his knowledge about the affairs of the Bureau.

However, NAB reserves the right of taking legal action as per law.

He said NAB was the most effective institution working against corruption.

The relevant ministry will raise the issue of European Union’s documents in its Pakistan office and EU will also be informed about the excellent performance of the Bureau. It merits mentioning here that NAB was a focal institution of United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) against corrupt elements which believes action against the corrupt without any discrimination. -- APP

Tariq Butt adds: The story appearing in The News and Daily Jang was absolutely based on the EU report and the correspondent wrote nothing else except its findings in the story. Therefore, the reporter stands by his story.
