The bench was hearing a Pro Bono Petition filed by Dr. Adil Zareef and others through our Senior Partner Ali Gohar Durrani. The Petition has been brought seeking directions from the Court for NAB to act in accordance with NAO and not on the basis of cherry picking. The court has also been asked to issue directions to hold those officials of NAB accountable who have been guilty of giving undue favors in withholding the accountability process against those involved in these scandals. The bench had noted with displeasure that orders of the court whereby there were clear directions given to Nab to continue their investigation in case of Malamjaba Ski Resort case. The said directions have been taken by NAB to be a restraint on NAB from proceeding further in the case. The court was also appraised that those at the helm of affairs are being spared and others are apprehended who don’t toe the line. The court thereafter adjourned the matter to 05/10/2021 for submission of the progress report for decision thereon.
