PTI challenges NAB Ordinance Amendments in Supreme Court

 

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Saturday challenged the recent amendments to the National Accountability (NAB) Ordinance in the Supreme Court.

The petition has been filed by PTI supremo Imran Khan through his counsel Khawaja Haris.

PTI pleaded that NAB Amendments in Section 2, 4, 5, 6, 11, 14, 15, 21, 23, and 25 were against the Constitution. PTI has made the federal government and National Accountability Bureau parties in the case.

PTI moved SC to nullify these  amendments.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan earlier this week said his party would challenge the recent amendments to the NAB Ordinance in the SC.

Earlier this month, a joint session of parliament had passed three bills, including those related to electoral reforms and the accountability law. Amendments to the National Accountability Bureau (Amendment) Bill were aimed at preventing the “misuse of law for political engineering and victimization of opponents”۔
