Chairman NAB appointment challenged in LHC

LAHORE -UNS: A petition has been moved to Lahore High Court (LHC) challenging the appointment of Justice (r) Javed Iqbal as chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday.

According to our correspondent, the application was filed by a citizen Javed Jafferi Advocate, who has appealed the IHC to invalidate the former Supreme Court judge’s appointment as chief of country’s anti-graft body.

The applicant has stated that the appointment was not made on the basis of merit and that no advertisement was published to announce the post.

After several meetings between the prime minister and opposition leader in the National Assembly, the government on Sunday appointed Justice (r) Javed Iqbal the chairman of the NAB for next four years.
