RPPs case: SC issues contempt notices to NAB officials

Issuing contempt notices to the concerned officials for not implementing its orders in Rental Power Projects (RPPs) case, the Supreme Court has summoned Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Admiral (Retd) Fasih Bukhari.
A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry heard the case.
During Friday’s hearing, NAB’s Deputy Prosecutor General, Fauzi Kazmi, prayed to the honourable court to allow an in-camera hearing for he had some classified disclosures to make. The CJP, rejecting his entreaty, said only those cases, which pertain to national security, are heard in-camera.
“To ensure transparency this case shall be heard in a regular session,” the CJP said.
Later, the SC issued show-cause notices to all the NAB officials involved in the case since March 30. The show-caused officers, which include Colonel (Retd) Shahzad, Kamran Qaiser, Raza Khan, and all the other supervisors have been given seven days to submit written replies.
The CJP, adjourning the case till September 25, warned that NAB chief and all the supervisors will be held responsible if any of the show-caused officials absconded.

    There is corruption everywhere in every institution and it is just not possible for Supreme Court to rectify the situation. However, such cases which involve the high ups of political and military institution such as NLC, Epiderene quota, Power rental plants and similar such cases must be finalized on priority basis. Asghar Khan's petition regarding involvement of ISI in bribing politicians and political parties for desired political outcome must also be finalized. Ant delay will be construed as Justice denied.
