In a statement issued here on Wednesday, the APML secretary general said that Justice Iqbal had levelled these baseless allegations to woo his masters.

Retired Judge Justice Javed Iqbal takes charge as National Accountability Bureau (NAB) after government and opposition finalised his name. He said that the cases against the Sharif family would be dealt with on merit and whatever the outcome might be, the law would take its course. However, before the announcement was made on Sunday, Leader of the Opposition Khursheed Shah had claimed that a consensus had been reached to appoint Iqbal as NAB chairman.

He also served as the chairman of a judicial commission mandated to trace missing persons.

"I will personally monitor the prosecution of the cases and a visible change will be witnessed in this regard in time", he said.In response to a question, he said that the shortcomings in the Panama case, if any, would be rectified.

Speaking in the committee, headed by Senator Nasreen Jalil, Iqbal said he has given importance to the Parliament and Constitution all his life.

He also said that the illegal confinement of people is unacceptable and that Pakistan is not a banana republic that people go missing here. The opposition leader said that being a former apex court judge, Iqbal possesses valuable judgment skills. Justice Iqbal has assumed the office upon the completion of the four-year term of outgoing NAB chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry.

In 2012, he was appointed as head of Abbotabad Inquiry Commission to investigate the USA forces attack and killing of Osama Bin Laden on Pakistan's territory.

The commission investigated and reported the circumstances surrounding the May 2011 raid at a compound in Abbottabad. The report was immediately classified, but a version was leaked by an worldwide news network.
