ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday said money laundering would have been eradicated from the country if Hudaibiya case was decided on merit.

The prime minister stated while talking to Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry, who called on him in Islamabad. During the meeting, both the leaders discussed matters pertaining to political situation.

The premier also termed that the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) given to Sharif family by the then former president Pervez Musharaf affected the decision.

“The money laundering would be eliminated from Pakistan if Musharraf hadn’t given an NRO to Sharif family,” PM Khan said. He also said that unfortunately NRO in Hudaibiya case was used as model in other cases of money laundering.

“Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and former president Asif Ali Zardari used the same model,” he added. He directed the information minister to share these details with public through media and expose those who are misleading nation.

Imran Khan said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has made new rules.

SC rejects NAB’s request to reopen Hudaibiya Paper Mills case
On 29 Oct, 2018, the Supreme Court of Pakistan rejected the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) request to reopen the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case.

A three- member special bench headed by Justice Mushir Alam and comprising Justice Qazi Faez Isa and Justice Mazhar Alam Miankhel resumed hearing on the review petition here in Islamabad today.

Justice Qazi Faez Isa asked the bureau to first determine what the crime was. Justice Mushir Alam told the bureau to point out errors in the Supreme Court’s earlier verdict.

Meanwhile, Justice Qazi remarked that the anti-graft watchdog could not point out the mistake of the law so there was no reason to reopen the case. The court dismissed the review petition of the NAB.
