LAHORE, May 11 : Bench of Lahore High Court (LHC) hearing plea of Chaudhry brothers of Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) challenging authority of Chairman of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) breaks.
According to details, Justice Farooq Haider has distanced himself from the bench hearing the petition after Lahore High Court Bar Association president Tahir Nasarullah Warraich objected to the presence of Justice Haider on the bench, saying the judge had represented the Chaudhry brothers in number of cases before his elevation.
Justice Sardar Ahmad Naeem has requested Chief Justice of LHC to form a new bench to hear the petition.
Earlier, Chaudhry brothers had Wednesday moved the LHC against the NAB chairman’s authority and alleged that the anti-corruption watchdog is involved in political engineering.
The petition maintained, “NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal has reopened 19-year-old assets beyond means case against us in which the anti-graft body failed to prove anything earlier.
“The NAB chairman does not have authority to reopen a 19-year-old case. We belong to a political family are being politically victimized. The court should declare the NAB chairman’s step as illegal.”
