ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) has ordered to file a case against National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry for creating hurdles in the investigation of the National Insurance Company Limited (NICL) corruption case, Express News reported on Friday.
The NICL scandal involves purchase of real estate on inflated rates. Zaman had sent a controversial memo to then establishment secretary Abdul Rauf on the progress of billions of rupees NICL scam, even though he was not authorised to do so.
A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, while announcing the final verdict on the NICL case, made the decision to hand over investigations to NAB.
The court also ordered NAB to recover Mohsin Habib Warraich, Amin Qasim Dada and Khalid Anwar Khan from abroad and take them into custody.
The NAB will also investigate Pakistan Peoples Party’s Makhdoom Amin Fahim, former principal secretary to the prime minister Nargis Sethi, former establishment division secretary Ismail Qureshi and Salman Ghani – who are all suspected to be involved in illegal appointment.
