Faisal Sakhi Butt approaches IHC against NAB in Park Lane Company case


ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court (IHC) Wednesday issued notices to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in a petition filed by Pakistan People’s Party leader Faisal Sakhi Butt praying to restrain NAB from harassing him.

A two-member bench consisted of Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani and Justice Mian Gul Hassan heard the case

The applicant has challenged his summoning by NAB in investigations of the Park Lane Company case.

The petitioner’s lawyer informed the court that NAB was harassing his client Faisal Sakhi Butt and appealed that NAB should be barred from investigating his client in the case.

He contended that every citizen had the right to sell his property according to his will and NAB had no authority to ask about his private transactions.

After hearing the initial arguments, the court issued a notice to NAB and sought reply in the matter.

The NAB had initiated investigations in 2018 against officers of CDA, M/s Park Lane Estates and others of being accused of illegally allotting forest department land to Park Lane Estate Company Private Limited, which caused huge loss to national exchequer.
