KARACHI: An official of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) informed on Monday the banking court hearing the money laundering case that the chairman NAB has ordered to transfer the case to a court in Rawalpindi.
He also submitted a copy of the letter bearing the signature of NAB Chairperson Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal. The letter said that the chairperson had ordered the transfer of the case in accordance with the provisions of the NAB Ordinance.

The banking court had been informed about the transfer on February 14 and a copy of the letter was submitted on Monday. The banking court, however, issued notices to the counsels for the accused in the case regarding the transfer of the case to a NAB court in Rawalpindi.
