LAHORE: Voices for strict accountability of former National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry have started growing after details of his corruption and wrongdoings have been revealed.

According to reports, Qamar Zaman Chaudhry used the post for his personal gains and conceal the crimes of the former ruling elite. Brig Syed Ahmed Irshad Tirmizi, former Chief of Staff, Directorate General ISI, in his book “Profiles of Intelligence”, wrote: “Qamar Zaman Chaudhry used to take money for sending people abroad when he was ADC to General Zia-ul-Haq.” He also called Qamar Zaman a “security risk” in the book.

The former NAB chairman also maligned the image of Pakistan when he was found involved in drugs smuggling. However, PML-N leaders appointed him the NAB chairman to conceal their corruption. He attempted to save them in all corruption cases and succeeded in his designs to a large extent.

People have reminded Prime Minister Imran Khan about his promise to take action against Qamar Zaman for being a national criminal. They say Imran Khan had promised to take action against the former NAB chairman during his election rallies. He has come to power and he should fulfill his promise, they demand.
