Pakistan Peoples Party leader Saleem Mandviwalla, refuting news about the return of a corruption reference against him, said that the reference filed against him was regarding wrongful allotment, not corruption.
The PPP leader said that news about the return of a corruption reference against him is false. ‘How can court return a corruption reference that NAB never filed?’ the PPP senator questioned.
Saleem said that NAB had filed the ‘Kidney Hills reference’ against him for political engineering. ‘Kidney Hills reference’ was about the wrongful allotment, not corruption, he added.
He added that he faced the law after NAB’s baseless allegations where the accountability watchdog could not prove anything. Accountability courts returned 50 NAB references declaring them out of the court’s jurisdiction after the recent amends to the Accountability Act of 1999.—INP
