KARACHI: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Monday accused National Accountability Bureau (NAB) of one sided accountability and said that the bureau is being used to pressurize politicians.

Talking to media after appearing before court in illegal appointment of MD PSO case, former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that cases against us are not of corruption but of misuse of power. Pakistan cannot function as long as NAB is operating in the country, he added.

The PML-N leader said that treason cases have been registered against half of country’s politicians. While criticizing Imran Khan, he said that if a case can be registered against opposition leaders, than a case can also be registered against Prime Minister.

On the other hand, NAB court adjourned the hearing on the illegal appointment of MD PSO case till November 2.
