SC declares Islamabad safe city contract null and void

Supreme Court has declared the contract of Islamabad Safe City Project null and void and has ordered National Accountability Bureau to conduct investigations.
According to the Supreme Court, the contract is non-transparent and against the rules, so tenders for the contract should be demanded again.
According to media reports, the Pakistani government signed a contract worth $ 125 million, that is Islamabad safe city project, with Chinese officials, according to which the machines for checking explosive materials at the entrance and exit points of Islamabad were bought but this contract fell a prey to corruption.
The Pakistani officials allegedly received the old machines by paying price for the new ones.
The law experts, Babar Sattar and Athar Minallah, challenged the corrupt deal in the Supreme Court.
During the last hearing, the apex court upheld the verdict for the case.
On Thursday, a three-member bench of Supreme Court, presided by Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk, and comprising Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, and Justice Azmat Saeed gave the ruling declaring the contract with the Chinese officials as null and void.
