ISLAMABAD - Minister for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Senator Pervaiz Rashid Tuesday said no corruption case had been proved against any leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), framed during dictatorial regime of Pervez Musharraf.

“Not a single case, framed with malafide intention, could be proved especially against any political leader belonging to PML-N,” the Minister said in a statement.

He said there was no doubt that the objective behind these cases was to get political gains and damage reputation of opponents. So, no case could be proved, out of the corruption references filed by NAB during the Musharraf regime, he added. He said the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had presented a list of corruption cases before the Supreme court, which were framed during the tenure of Pervez Musharraf.

He said a dictator had framed cases against political leaders after toppling the democratically elected government in 1999 to get their support and loyalty.

He said people voted in favour of the PML-N in general elections even after framing of these cases.
