National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Rawalpindi, had summoned former first lady Bushra Bibi on June 7 to record her statement as a trustee of the Al-Qadir University Trust in the £190 million National Crime Agency (NCA) UK settlement case.

However, in her reply to a notice issued by NAB, Bushra Bibi has requested that the hearing be shifted to June 8, as her husband Imran Khan was already scheduled to appear before the Islamabad High Court and an anti-terrorism court in the capital tomorrow.

Bushra Bibi wrote that she observes strict purdah and that is why she would like to be accompanied by her husband when she travels to Islamabad.
As per media reports, Bushra Bibi would be included as a witness for her testimony. NAB is required by new laws to inform a person if they are being called as a witness or an accused in order to record a statement.
