Kamran Faisal case: NAB expresses distrust on Supreme Court:

For the first time, NAB shows his cards but what to its integrity?

According to story in national press;
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) expressed its distrust both on the Supreme Court (SC) and the bench hearing a case regarding death of Kamran Faisal in mysterious circumstances.

Justice Jawwad S. Khwaja headed the two-member bench hearing the case to adjudicate if Faisal's death was a suicide or a murder.

Appearing before the bench, the NAB’s Prosecutor General K K Agha expressed distrust of not only the bench but the apex court itself.

Justice Khilji Arif Hussain asked the NAB’s official to leave the apex court and come directly to the bench. On this, K K Agha said the NAB is also mistrustful of the current bench.

Directing K K Agha to present his reservations in writing, Justice Khwaja remarked: “Rule of law and the constitution is important for the court, come what may.”

Justice Hussain said the court will not insist if there is some valid reason for the NAB’s mistrust. On this, K K Agha pleaded for time to present reservations in written form.

The court also called the notification of Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal Commission. Attorney General of Pakistan Irfan Qadir told the court that the commission has been set up. He also produced a letter from the interior ministry. However, the court said there are many things in the letter that need explanation.

Meantime, the court appointed Anwar Kamal as amicus curiae. On this Prosecutor General NAB Agha took exception, saying that Anwar Kamal assisted the court in rental power projects (RPPs) corruption case.

The court adjourned the hearing till February 01 (Friday).
