ISLAMABAD A three-member Supreme Court bench, Friday, issued notices to Adnan A Khawaja asking him to explain why he assumed two posts - Managing Director Oil and Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL) and Chairman NAVTEC - despite the fact that he, as NAB convict, was disqualified to assume such a post. The bench comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice Tariq Parvez and Justice Ghulam Rabbani was hearing a suo moto notice on the reported appointment of Adnan Khawaja as Chairman OGDCL by the government. The court issued notices to NAB to explain whether Adnans appeal had been finally decided by the Islamabad High Court or not. The notices were also issued to the persons who had given sureties in Adnans cases, while the Attorney General Maulvi Anwarul Haq was asked to provide the details of payment made to Adnan as Chairman of National Vocational & Technical Education Commission (NAVTEC). Brig (R) Imtiaz Ahmed, former DG ISI, who is also involved in NAB cases was directed to appear in the next hearing. The court directed the Secretary Establishment Division to inform the court on the next hearing, September 21, as why Adnan was appointed on two posts - MD OGDCL and Chairman NAVTEC. In the wake of the suo motu notice taken by the apex court and the subsequent revelations in the media, the government annulled the appointment of Adnan Khawaja as OGDCL Chairman, only a day after he assumed the charge. The chief justice said if Mr Khawaja had not completed his sentence, he would again go to jail. Adnan informed the court that he was on bail and his appeal in NRO case was pending before the court. He said he had served as Chairman NAVTEC and worked without pay. The Chief Justice asked when he was disqualified, why he took that post. You have violated the Supreme Court and Accountability Court decisions. You have misused your authority, the Chief Justice said. The Chief Justice noted that Khawaja was granted the bail when no one wanted to touch the NAB cases. Ismail Qureshi, Secretary Establishment Division informed the court that he did not know that Adnan was a NAB convict but as soon as he came to know through media he brought the matter to the notice of Prime Minister, who immediately ordered withdrawal of the notification of Mr Khawajas appointment. He said the appointment of Mr Khawaja as OGDCL chief was made on Sept 8 and the notification was withdrawn on Sep 16. The Chief Justice inquired 'who ordered you for issuing the notification. To this, Qureshi said, The order came from big boss. It is pertinent to mention here that Adnan Khawaja was the co-accused in a corruption case filed by NAB under Section 10 of the NAB Ordinance. He was convicted in that case with a two-year rigorous imprisonment and a fine of Rs0.2 million. He was also disqualified for a period of ten years from seeking or being elected, chosen, appointed or nominated as member of any public office, any statuary or local authority of the government or granted any financial facilities in the form of any loan by any government bank. The Islamabad High Court had set aside the judgement of the Accountability Court after giving the benefit of NRO to Adnan Khawaja on December 4, 2008. In view of the apex courts verdict declaring the NRO null and void, all such cases stood revived.
