Presenting before the media draft of the opposition for amendments in the NAB law, Senator Faisal Javed said the opposition has proposed amendments in 34 of the 38 provisions of the NAB Act.
He said the opposition wanted that all the corruption cases before 1999 should be closed and corruption below Rs. 1 billion should not be taken up by the NAB.
Faisal Javeed said the opposition also desired to change in the definition of Benami and that the international evidence should not be presented before the NAB.
Faisal Javed said the opposition's public meetings were flopped shows, and therefore, they were also showing reluctance to give resignations from assemblies.
