ISLAMABAD The proposed National Accountability Commission (NAC) Bill 2010 remains in doldrums as it is unlikely to be presented in the upcoming session of the National Assembly because of unresponsive attitude of the PPP-led government. The much-awaited National Accountability Commission (NAC) Bill 2010 is to replace the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) with the National Accountability Commission (NAC). The situation remains unchanged as four major dissenting notes already submitted by the major opposition party PML-N were left again without deliberations during the meeting of the NA standing committee on Law and Justice and Parliamentary Affairs held in the Parliament House on Thursday. The critically important issue was put off again because of the absence of Federal Law Minister and State Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs. Members of the PML-N representing in the committee also staged a token walkout from the in-camera meeting of the Standing Committee over absence of Federal Ministers and other concerned senior officers. The meeting was held under the chairmanship of Begun Nasim Akhtar Chuadhry of PPP. Four parliamentarians of the MPL-N including Zahid Hamid, Justice (R) Iftikhar Ahmed Cheema, Ms Anusha Rahman Khan Advocate and Mrs Saira Afzal Tarar while Abdul Ghafoor Chaudhry and Justice (R) Fakhar-un-Nisa Khokhar of the ruling PPP were present in the meeting to discuss the dissenting notes besides Riaz Fatyana of PML. The Committee on the proposal of PML-N parliamentarians has also sought complete record of the cases that were decided during the tenure of former acting Chairman NAB, Javed Zia Qazi. The Supreme Court of Pakistan had declared illegal the appointment of acting Chairman NAB Javed Zia Qazi. PML-N through its four dissenting notes has insisted that the head of the NAC should be a sitting Supreme Court Judge and opposed the immunity given in the proposed accountability law to any public office holder for any wrong doing committed in 'good faith. PML-N which is the major opposition party in the lower house also proposed that NAC should pursue the cases from 1947 not after 1985 as proposed in the law. The party also sought to give the powers to the commission for mutual assistance with foreign countries including seizure and forfeiture of foreign assets related to any investigation in Pakistan. Later, Zahid Hamid of PML-N while talking to reporters said that the proposed accountability law was pending with the committee for the last 17 months but the incumbent government was not serious about it. The non-seriousness of the government to present the proposed bill in the NA for its passage can be observed from the fact that only one parliamentarian was present in the committee meeting to discuss it, he added. Justice (R) Fakhar-un-Nisa Khokhar of PPP had already left the meeting after the discussion of another item present on the agenda moved by him, he informed. He also informed that PM misled the Parliament by saying on the floor of the house that the new accountability law had been approved by the consensus of votes despite the fact that his party had given dissenting notes on the draft of the bill.
