Islamabad (Staff Report): Supreme Court said that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has become a facilitator of those involved in corruption.

A two-judge bench of the top court — comprising Justice Amir Hani Muslim and Justice Azmat Saeed —made the observation while hearing a suo motu case against the alleged misuse of the VR law.

The bench voiced anger over the misuse of Section 25(a) of the National Accountability Ordinance 1999, saying that the bureau has become a facilitator of those involved in corrupt practices.

The bench asked Attorney General of Pakistan (AGP) Ashtar Ausaf about the government’s take on the VR law. The AGP said the matter was already in the upper house of parliament.
