ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Accountability Shahzad Akbar on Friday rejected the accusations of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) pertaining to his meeting with Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing Asif Ali Zardari.

Talking to a private news channel he clarified his position by terming his meetings with Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and National Accountability Bureau (NAB) as a routine matter.

Replying to a question about the allegation leveled by the PPP’s leaders Saeed Ghani and Sherry Rehman, he asserted that no meeting was held with the JIT on December 19.

“Meetings with FIA, NAB and FBR are held now and then. These are part of the government’s unit recovering illegal assets,” he declared.
