Moreover, it asserted: “No evidence of misuse of powers was found against Shahbaz Sharif.”, according to Geo news.

The NAB report, which is likely to spark controversy over the impartiality of the corruption watchdog stated that no aspect of malice was proven against the prime minister in the scandal.
