SC orders submission of written statements from NAB, Saleh in RPP case


Disposing Faisal Saleh Hayat’s petition regarding Karkey rental power project (RPP), Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry said the power plant cannot be allowed to leave the country without giving surety regarding repayment of the dues, warning the Chairman of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) will be responsible if so happened.
Submitting a report before a three-member SC’s bench, the NAB said Karkey rental power plant will be allowed to leave the country only after all dues are received from it.
According to a private television channel, the court directed Faisal Saleh Hayat and the Bureau, who could not strike harmony over the dues, to separately file their respective statements.
Chief Justice Chaudhry said nobody can be allowed to make away after looting the country, warning the NAB that it will be responsible if Karkey leaves the country without offering assurance of dues’ repayment.
Prosecutor General NAB KK Agha said Turkey’s ambassador also contacted for the return of the power plant. On this, Justice Gulzar Ahmed remarked, “If so, should we give entire Pakistan to Turkey?” adding the NAB is entangled in the statistics after the lapse of even eight months.
The Chief Justice Chaudhry said the rulings on corruption cases are meant only to prevent such incidents from happening in future; however, it would be deplorable if the spate of such occurrences do not cease.


  1. The SC is right….all money should be recovered & then Turkish ship released….if the govt or NAB thinks that SC ruling is unreasonable , it should file in SC to review case, but they know it will backfire as all evidence points to corruption as per hearings taken place in RPP case…
