Chaudhry brothers file petition in LHC against NAB chairman

LAHORE: Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi have filed a petition in the Lahore High Court (LHC) against the authorities of the Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
According to details, both brothers Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi filed a constitutional petition against the powers of Chairman NAB Javed Iqbal in LHC.
In the petition, Chaudhry brothers stated that the NAB has become a political institution, and courts have also ruled against the role of the bureau and its process of investigation. The petitioners also stated that the chairman of the bureau has ordered to reinvestigate 19 years old cases against them.
According to Chaudhry brothers, Chairman NAB does not have the power to reopen a 19-year-old closed inquiry against them. “This is purely political revenge. We request the court to declare illegal NAB’s move to reopen inquiry into assets beyond income case against us,” the petitioners stated.
The NAB had summoned Chaudhry brothers in assets beyond income case. According to the bureau, a number of shares are found in various companies under the name of Chaudhry brothers and their families. Other than these shares, details of hefty transactions to different banks under their names had also emerged.
