SJC seeks Legal guidance from government regarding removal of NAB Chairman

Headed by Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed, the council took up the reference moved by Advocate Chaudhry Mohammad Saeed Zafar against NAB chairman Justice (Retd) Javed Iqbal. NAB Chairman Javed Iqbal’s 4-year term is ending on Oct 8.

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) has deferred further proceedings on a reference, seeking legal guidance from the federal government regarding legal lacuna in the procedure of removal of the Chairman of National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Headed by Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed, the council took up the reference moved by Advocate Chaudhry Mohammad Saeed Zafar against NAB chairman Justice (Retd) Javed Iqbal. NAB Chairman Javed Iqbal’s 4-year term is ending on Oct 8.

This reference was filed before the Supreme Judicial Council in the wake of a leaked indecent video showing alleged clandestine meetings of the NAB chairman with Tayyaba Gul, a suspect facing an inquiry with NAB.

It may be noted that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government appointed Javed Iqbal as the chairman of NAB in October 2017 after.
