NBP president files appeal in SC against IHC’s judgment

ISLAMABAD: National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) President Saeed Ahmed filed an appeal in the apex court pleading to declare the Islamabad High Court (IHC) judgment null and void in which he was declared guilty as co-accused in the supplementary reference against Ishaq Dar.

Saeed Ahmed, in his petition to Supreme Court (SC), has made National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and other concerned departments as a party.

The application submitted through Advocate Hashmat Habib reasoned that the evidence provided by NAB was not enough to declare Ahmed co-accused.

It is added that NAB considered the SC’s observation in July 28, 2017, to include those persons linked with the case in investigation process as a direction to file the reference against Ahmed.

It is further stated that the IHC hadn’t fulfilled the legal requirements in the case.

Ahmed hoped in his application that the top court would nullify the IHC judgement.

On April 2, the indictment of the co-accused in supplementary reference filed by NAB against the ex-finance minister was delayed again after rumpus created by the president of the Islamabad High Court Bar Association (IHCBA). Javed Akbar Shah, who represented co-accused Mansoor Raza, misbehaved with the judge, impolitely asking for the adjournment of the case.

The accountability judge served a show-cause notice to the IHCBA president for misbehaving with him and adjourned the case till April 5.
