ISLAMABAD: Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal officially assumed charge as the chairman of the NAB on Wednesday. Speaking to the media outside Parliament House, Iqbal said the cases against the Sharif family will proceed on merit, adding that whether the result is exoneration or punishment, the law will take its course.
He added that he will personally monitor the prosecution of the cases and a visible 'change' will be witnessed in this regard in time.
He said that shortcomings in the Panama case, if any, will be rectified.
Moreover, Iqbal said in case any objections are raised against his honesty, he will resign from the NAB chief post.
