NAB rejects Saeed Ghani's allegations

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has rejected the allegations of Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani, 24NewsHD TV Channel reported on Friday.  

The bureau clarified in a statement that the Karachi chapter's probe against Saeed Ghani is being on under the law. Last day, NAB had already condemned Saeed Ghani’s attempts of influencing the corruption cases under trial against Syed Khursheed Shah and Ejaz Jakhrani in the accountability court of Sukkur. 

NAB condemned Saeed Ghani’s attempt to benefit the accused persons and decided to review the statement of Saeed Ghani in the light of clause 31 (a) of NAB Ordinance. 

It called upon Saeed Ghani to thoroughly peruse NAB Ordinance which had already been thoroughly reviewed by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in Asfandyar Wali case.

In response to the allegations of Saeed Ghani regarding alleged favours to Haleem Adil Sheikh, it said that the inquiry against Haleem Adil Sheikh continuing with the authorisation of complaint verification against him by the competent authority. 

Saeed Ghani has again alleged that NAB has transferred the case of Haleem Adil Sheikh from anti-corruption Established Sindh to NAB Karachi which is totally baseless, misleading and against the fact.

The bureau explained the factual position is that the case of Haleem Adil Sheikh was transferred from the anti-corruption Sindh to senior member, board of revenue, Sindh on July 16, 2020, which is part of the record and no case of Haleem Adil Sheikh was transferred to NAB Karachi.

NAB Karachi after receiving complaint and approval from competent authority not only completed complaint verification and inquiry is still continuing against Mr Sheikh. NAB has decided to send legal notice to Saeed Ghani for misleading the public and trying to tarnish the image of NAB
