NAB opposes acquittal pleas in Nooriabad power project reference

National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Monday submitted its comments on the acquittal plea of the co-accused in Nooriabad power project reference against Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah.

AC-III Judge Syed Asghar heard the graft reference against Sindh’s CM and others. Co-accused Sultan Farooq, Syed Masoodul Hassan and Shazia Jaffer had filed acquittal pleas in the case. The NAB prosecutor submitted the comments and prayed the court to dismiss the acquittal pleas.

The defence lawyers adopted the stance that the Parliament has approved the new bill of NAB and it had been sent to the President for gazette notification. The court adjourned further hearing till June 16.
