NAB approaches SC for cancellation of Javed Latif’s bail
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has Tuesday approached the Supreme Court (SC) for cancellation of Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Mian Javed Latif’s bail.
The plea stated that the bureau is currently carrying out an inquiry against the PML-N leader and Member National Assembly in assets beyond means case.
“Due to the LHC order, the NAB officials are unable to arrest and probe him,” the plea said while asking the SSC to set aside the LHC decision on bail.
The NAB further termed the LHC order as an intervention into the NAB inquiry. Javed Latif’s mother, sons and four brothers have also been respondents in the petition filed by the NAB.
The anti-graft watchdog body requested the top court to declare the LHC decision of December 26 as null and void. It is to be mentioned here that Mian Javed Latif and other suspects have been accused of making assets beyond means.
Earlier, the NAB summoned Javed Latif in the inquiry into assets beyond income case on January 1. He has been again summoned for providing incomplete record.
The NAB has also summoned Mian Anwar Latif, Mian Munawar Latif and Mian Amjad Latif, Mian Akhtar Latif, Javed Latif’s son Ahsan Latif and mother Walayat Latif. All the seven people were summoned twice on December 12 and 18.
On December 23, Latif had appeared with his counsel. He had submitted the reply from him and his family.
The combined investigation team (CIT) had asked Latif with other documents with him.
Mian Javed Latif and his family have been given the assets form and asked to appear after filling up it on January 1.
