Supreme Court of Pakistan grills NAB over its performance
Islamabad: The Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) has raised questions over the performance of National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
According to details, while hearing bail pleas of Dr. Dinsha and Jameel Baloch in the fake bank accounts case, SC remarked that there is no one other than NAB chairman who praises the accountability bureau.
During the proceedings, Justice Umar Ata Bandial remarked that the court is not satisfied with the performance of NAB in the present case.
“An elderly person like Dr. Dinsha has been in jail for 20 months, while 27 others are roaming around free. This actually shows the impartial attitude of NAB,” he said.
Justice Umar Bandial further said that people will not invest in Pakistan because of the anti-corruption watchdog.
“The process of accountability and rule of law in Japan is an example for us,” he added.
Talking to NAB prosecutor, Justice Umar Ata Bandial said that everyone knows where all the finances of Sindh are going.
“Those holding public office should be held accountable in all cases, but unfortunately NAB is not applying its law equally for everyone,” he said.
