NAB investigating Tauqir Sadiq appointment case: officer


Investigation officer of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Waqas Ahmad told the Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday that NAB was investigating into the appointment case of former OGRA chairman Tauqir Sadiq.

He said NAB had summoned Raja Pervaiz Ashraf on May 26, Yousaf Raza Gilani on May 27 and Dr Asim Hussain on May 30 in connection with investigation.

A Dubai court has reserved the judgement in the Tauqir Sadiq extradition case, and will announce it on June 3.

Ahmad presented this report before a three-member bench of SC presided over by Justice Jawad S Khwaja.

The SC directed the NAB investigation officer that Sadiq be brought to Pakistan as soon as possible and appropriate action be taken against him.

The case will now be heard after the decision of the Dubai Court, therefore further proceedings were adjourned until June 6.
