A three-member bench of Supreme Court of Pakistan, on Wednesday (June 26) dismissed the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) plea against acquittal of former Director General Intelligence Bureau Brig (r) Imtiaz in assets beyond means case. The SC has retained the High Court verdict regarding the acquittal of Brigadier (Retd) Imtiaz, his wife, Nasreen Imtiaz and Adnan K Khawaja.
As per details, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had submitted a plea and argued that the verification of assets had to be made by the accused. As the hearing went underway, Justice Khosa made remarks that determining the assets beyond the limits was the duty of the anti-corruption body but it did not determine the total value of assets in the case.
In query regarding Adnan Khawaja, the NAB prosecutor said that Adnan Khawaja was a benamidar of Brigadier (Retd) Imtiaz and he (Adnan Khawaja) brought a shop from an amount provided by the former DG IB. The Chief Justice remarked that if the properties were made on an illegal source of income, then the prosecution must prove it.
