Senate body to move privilege motion against NAB chairman
He had been summoned by the Senate Standing Committee on Human Rights in relation to the cases of missing persons.
Chairman of the Standing Committee Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar stated that the NAB chairman had been called for a briefing in his capacity as chairman of the Missing Persons Commission. He said the Sindh IG attended the meeting, but Javed Iqbal did not.
According to the registrar, the NAB chairman could not attend the meeting because of health concerns. The registrar also said the NAB chairman could not come due to security reasons as former president Asif Ali Zardari was scheduled to appear before the NAB court. It is understandable that the NAB chairman could not attend the hearing due to his health. However, security reasons due to Asif Ali Zardari's summoning and Pakistan People's Party are not fathomable and justified, the committee said.
