NAB takes important decision over the 100 applicants seeking favour under new NAB amendment 2019

ISLAMABAD – National Accountability Bureau takes important decision over the 100 applicants seeking favour under new NAB amendment 2019.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to oppose applications filed by more than 100 graft suspects seeking relief under the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Amendment Ordinance 2019, it emerged on Saturday.

In this regard, the accountability watchdog has prepared its response in all of these applications, including some known corruption cases of mega money laundering through fake bank accounts and rental power.

Sources familiar with the matter told the media that the bureau would plead with the court to dismiss former premier Raja Pervez Ashraf’s bail plea in the rental power case as the accused person has inflicted damage of billions of rupees on the national exchequer.

Soon, the NAB will submit its response against other prominent individuals who have applied for the relief including Liaquat Ali Jatoi and former federal minister Akram Khan Durrani.

The bureau has already filed its request with the court to turn down the bail applications filed by Abdul Ghani Majeed, principal accused in the fake accounts and money laundering case.
