Former PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi lands into yet another trouble

KARACHI: Former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi lands into yet another trouble over illegal appointment of former MD Pakistan State Oil.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has on Wednesday recommended reference against former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Shahid Khaqan Abbasi , for "illegally appointing Shaikh Imran ul Haq as MD Pakistan State Oil (PSO)".

In a press release, the NAB's Karachi chapter recommended a reference investigation against Abbasi over the PSO MD matter as it said he, in his capacity as the former minister of petroleum and natural resources, violated the government's "rules and procedures" for the "appointments of CEOs in Public Sector Enterprises".

The anti-graft watchdog further stressed that its "investigation revealed that Imran ul Haq was appointed as MD PSO due to having personal affiliation with" Abbasi.
