ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on 17th May.

This will be Bilawal’s second appearance before NAB after he was summoned along with his father former president Asif Zali Zardari on March 20.
During that appearance, NAB in a press release said Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Asif Ali Zardari were questioned by the combined investigation team under the supervision of DG NAB Rawalpindi Irfan Mangi for approximately two hours in three cases.
NAB also handed a questionnaire to the two on the three cases and informed that this should be submitted to the CIT within 10 days. The press release added that NAB would legally evaluate responses given by the two today and those to the questionnaire and decide if they are to be summoned in these three cases again.
The press release also stated that this investigation was being done under the direct supervision of NAB chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal.
Speaking to party workers after his appearance, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said NAB was created for political engineering.
“It was our fault and weakness and we did not change this dark [NAB] law during our tenure in government.”
“The case for which I was summoned, I became a shareholder of that company when I was younger than one year old. These people are starting my accountability from that age.”
