ISLAMABAD - NAB has reportedly received the biggest plea bargain offer of its history, media report has revealed.

NAB’s DG Saleem Shehzad said that it has received a plea bargain appeal in the Eden Housing Society scam which involves former chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry’s son-in-law, Murtaza Amjad who was arrested in Dubai.

Shehzad stated that the Eden Housing Scheme has offered a plea bargain of Rs13 billion. “Plea bargain is a court order, not an executive order. Without court approval, NAB cannot do the plea bargain,” the DG said.

The total affectees of the Eden scam are 11,500, according to a report.

The bureau has estimated the property seized from the Eden group to be worth up to Rs20b, claiming that it would compensate the affectees soon.
