Opposition parties, including the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM)?Pakistan, Pakistan Muslim League?Functional (PML-F), and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), jointly filed a petition in SHC challenging the controversial National Accountability Ordinance (NAO) 1999 Repeal Bill, 2017 (now Act) recently enacted by the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP)-led provincial government. The law strips away NAB's powers to take action against provincial government officials in Sindh. Notification repealing NAB Ordinance in Sindh issued Sindh Assembly passed the 'anti-NAB bill' earlier last month A two-member bench, led by SHC Chief Justice Ahmed Ali Sheikh, also ordered the Sindh advocate general to provide lists of names of provincial assembly members who voted for the bill and those under inquiry by NAB. The court directed the anti-graft body to continue its investigations till the final judgment is announced by the court but added that any final report in the investigation should not be presented. Over 60 bureaucrats and MPAs, including provincial ministers, are said to be facing NAB inquiries in Sindh. Law minister Zia Lanjar, Sharmila Farooqi, Sharjeel Memon and Pir Mazharul Haq, among others, are being investigated by NAB. Arguing over the bill, the Sindh advocate general remarked that under the 18th Amendment, the provincial assembly had powers to pass such a bill. Responding to this, the SHC chief justice remarked that this means the federal anti-corruption courts, anti-terrorism courts and anti-narcotics courts should be shut down then. The case was then adjourned until August 22. In their petition, the opposition parties? leaders ? MQM-Pakistan Convener Dr Farooq Sattar, PML-F MPA Nusrat Sehar Abbasi, and others ? made the provincial chief secretary, Sindh Assembly secretary, home and law secretaries, NAB director-general and six accountability courts in the province as respondents. The petitioners alleged that the PPP was engaged in corruption in the province and that the party?s leadership and bureaucrats serving under them were facing a number of investigations under the NAB ordinance. The opposition leaders argued that many more corruption cases could be filed in the future due to rampant corruption in Sindh. The petition states that PPP legislators bypassed the prescribed procedures to introduce and pass the NAO 1999 Repeal Bill, 2017 in the assembly, without permitting any discussion or debate by opposition members. Opposition leaders requested the SHC to annul the act and ensure that the new law does not override or eclipse the inquiries launched or filed under the NAB ordinance. The SHC was pleaded to permanently, or while the petition is pending, restrain the respondents from transferring any inquiry, investigation, proceedings or cases under the NAB ordinance to any other authority under the new law.

  24. KARACHI: The Sindh government is expected to table a bill seeking to repeal the applicability of the National Accountability Ordinance of 1999 during provincial assembly session today (Monday). The bill seeks to curtail NAB?s powers and give it the mandate to probe and hear cases related to federal institutions after a formal endorsement from the Sindh Assembly. Over the matter, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leaders informally met Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari at Zardari House in Nawabshah on Sunday. Meeting participants included Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah, law minister and advocate general. During the meeting, Zardari was advised on the legal aspects of repealing the NAB ordinance. CM Sindh said that all PPP members of the assembly have been instructed to attend the session today (Monday). Interestingly, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has already curtailed the powers of NAB in the province and established their own Ehtesab Commission. However, the move to make a similar move in Sindh has led the opposition to question its maintainability. The opposition members also pointed out that most of the ministers and officials affiliated with the party are currently being investigated by the NAB. Moreover, they expressed their fears that NAB?s role will be taken up by Anti-Corruption Establishment, which is controlled by the Sindh government. On Friday, the Sindh cabinet gave its approval to repeal the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) ordinance in Punjab.

Speaking to the media in Hala, Sindh during a visit, Zubair said the report will only be submitted to the apex court on July 10, following which the special bench will review it ? a process that may take weeks and even months. The governor, however, noted that ?the one good thing everyone should acknowledge is that the investigation occurring according to the Constitution. If this was the 1990s, the whole system would have been wrapped up.? The federal and provincial governments are not going anywhere and general elections will be held in 2018, he assured. He also claimed that the JIT?s probe is historic as such a level of scrutiny of a prime minister and his family has not happened before. Earlier, the governor visited the shrine of Sufi saint Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai.
