SC reprimands NAB officers for not arresting ex-Ogra chairman
ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Friday reprimanded officers from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) over the failure to arrest former Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) chairman Tauqir Sadiq, DawnNews reported.
A two-judge bench of the apex court, led by Justice Jawwad S. Khawaja, heard the case.
Deputy Prosecutor General NAB Fauzi Zafar requested the court to issue directives to the police to cooperate with the NAB in arresting Sadiq as the bureau did not have a force of its own.
Zafar added that the investigation officer could also submit a statement before the bench on the issue of Sadiq’s arrest.
Justice Khawaja remarked that out of Rs 82 billion, only Rs 30 billion had been recovered by the NAB. He also directed the bureau to submit a written reply to the bench on the amount recovered.
