LHC hears pleas of Chaudhry brothers against NAB inquiries, summons DG NAB Lahore
November 18, 2020

 A division bench headed by Justice Sadaqat Ali Khan heard a petition filed by the Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi who challenged the bureau’s inquiries into charges of misuse of powers, willful default, and asset beyond means against them.

A NAB lawyer informed the judges that the bureau has decided to close its inquiry about alleged illegal appointments against Pervaiz Elahi. He said the cases against the Chaudhry brothers have been pending for the past 20 years.

The NAB informed the LHC that a probe into alleged assets beyond means of PML-Q leaders Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi is in a final phase.

The LHC directed the NAB Lahore director general to appear in personal capacity before it on next hearing to explain why the inquiries are pending for two decades. The hearing was adjourned until November 26.
