The Supreme Court of Pakistan will hear a fake degree case against Lahore NAB Director General Shahzad Saleem.

He is accused of submitting fake documents to secure employment. The case will be heard on November 12. Moreover, NAB Chairperson Javed Iqbal has taken notice of Saleem’s interviews to television channels.

He has summoned a record of the interviews. An investigation will be conducted according to the law, Iqbal remarked. “NAB respects all members of the assembly.” He said that the investigation team will evaluate if Saleem has said anything which wasn’t true.

Saleem spoke to five channels — Geo News, Hum TV, ARY News, SAMAA TV and Dunya TV. During his interview, he said the bureau has more than enough evidence to file a reference against Shehbaz and will do so by the end of November.

Saleem claimed that the NAB officials didn’t ask Shehbaz Sharif to become an approver against anyone. “We only asked him if he wants to say something about Khawaja Asif.” He said that what Shehbaz Sharif told the National Assembly was out of context.

It is the pertinent to mention that the opposition parties submitted a privilege motion in the National Assembly on Friday under Rule 95 of the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in National Assembly, 2007.
