Pakistan Bar Council Demand Across the Board Accountability

Syed Amjad Shah (Vice-Chairman Pakistan Bar council) has issued the statement and demand from the Hon’be Supreme Court that after consideration the corruption case against Mr. Arslan Iftikhar, referred the matter to the NAB for investigation and necessary action against which a Review Petition was filed by Mr. Arslan Iftikhar, challenging the said order but the said Review Petition later on was withdrawn by him. Therefore the original order of the Hon’ble Supreme Court stood restored and as such the learned Attorney General for Pakistan in compliance with said order of the Hon’ble Supreme Court has referred the matter to the NAB for information and necessary action under the law but is is a matter of concern that despite lapse of quite some time no action has been taken by the NAB.

The Pakistan Bar Council discussed the matter in its last meeting and resolved that in view of impotence of the issue specially for ensuring across the board accountability and elimination of corruption, under the influence of highest judicial office, it is imperative that the corruption case against Mr. Arslan Iftikhar, pending in the NAB should also be investigated and dealt with, as per the law without any loss of time.

He has, therefore addressed a letter to the Chairmen NAB requesting him to issue direction for initiating investigation of the case of Mr. Arslan Iftikhar at the earliest for bringing the same to logical end.
