Ch brothers’ pleas challenging NAB chairman’s powers accepted for hearing

Ch brothers’ pleas challenging NAB chairman’s powers accepted for hearing
June 17, 2020
LAHORE (92 News) – The Lahore High Court (LHC) has accepted Chaudhry brothers’ pleas challenging the powers of NAB Chairman Justice Javed Iqbal for hearing. The court has sought a reply and issued notices to the NAB for July 6. Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi have also challenged three inquiries of the NAB. Earlier, a LHC bench had issued notices to NAB chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal and other respondents to come up with their response to the petition by the next hearing slated for May 11. Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and other PML-Q leaders appeared before the court during the hearing. In their petition, the petitioners alleged that the bureau is an institution of political engineering. The anti-graft watchdog’s head has ordered a probe into a 19-year-old case against them, despite the fact that the bureau had carried out an inquiry into it almost two decades back but couldn’t find anything incriminating, they said. The petitioners also stated that the NAB chief lacks the authority to reopen a matter that has already been closed and pleaded with the LHC bench to declare void his orders in this regard.
