RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Thursday appeared before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to record his statement in the joint Venture (JV) Opal 255 corruption case.
The strict security arrangements were taken on the appearance of the PPP Chairman as the roads leading to the NAB office were blocked by placing hurdles.
The summon for Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to appear before NAB Rawalpindi was issued on Monday and he was directed to bring records of Zardari Group of Companies from 2008 to 2019.
Bilawal Bhutto is accused of taking out an amount of Rs1.22 billion from a fake bank account to utilize it for his personal company.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari argued during the NAB probe that he was a child when the transaction was made, however, the documents bear his signatures.
The NAB authorities have already acquired the audit report and document bearing the signature of the partychairman.
It is pertinent to mention here that the NAB two days ago in its summon directed the PPP chairman to bring along with him all record of Zardari group of companies from 2008 to 2019 while it also demanded Bilawal Bhutto Zardari a list of Board of Directors.
