Tariq Bashir Cheema apprises PM of PML-Q reservations
May 13, 2020
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Federal Minister Tariq Bashir Cheema called on Prime Minister Imran Khan and apprised him of the reservations of his party PML-Q. During the meeting, the minister demanded that an inquiry should be launched as whom order the NAB had reopened a 20-year-old case against the Chaudhry brothers. Tariq Bashir Cheema said that why the NAB chairman is opening the old matters when the country is fighting against coronavirus. He said that the prime minister had assured him of a probe into the matter. Earlier, the Chaudhry brothers have filed a petition against the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman and challenged his authority. The Lahore High Court accepted the plea. After a preliminary hearing, a bench of the LHC issued notices to NAB chairman Justice (r) 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.
