ISLAMABAD - Finally Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has come out of the indecisive state expressing his resolve to go by the book regarding reopening of the cases closed under the defunct National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) within the country and abroad. The sources in the NAB informed that following the short order of the Supreme Court of Pakistan in the NRO case, NAB Chairman Navid Ahsan had not wasted any time and passed orders to his subordinate offices as well as all other concerned departments for reopening of the cases, which were withdrawn under the NRO. But as there was delay in the execution of his orders and reopening of the certain high profile cases because the government had not responded to some of the queries of the NAB, therefore, it seemed that he (Chairman NAB) was not implementing the court orders. Even the matter of the reopening of the Swiss cases was taken up with the Federal Law Ministry soon after the courts orders but till then the NAB had not received any response from the Law Ministry despite the fact that a couple of reminders were also dispatched by the NAB in this regard. After the fresh warning of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, the NAB Chairman NAB had, once again, sent another reminder to the Ministry of Law and Justice, however, response in this regard is still awaited. The sources in the government disclosed that the core committee meeting of Pakistan Peoples Party held at the Presidency on the other day had also remained in an indecisive state on the matter and the leaders were divided over the issue of tackling the issue of the Swiss cases filed against President Zardari. The sources in the NAB said that the Chairman NAB had put his foot down and was ready to take the bull by the horns for which he had prepared his case and would present it before the apex court in case he failed to get reply on the matter of reopening of the cases against the President of Pakistan in Switzerland. The legal minds in the government were also divided over the matter and some of them were of the view that as President had immunity so these cases could not be reopened, while the others were of the view that President Zardari should himself allow reopening of these cases and fight these out in the courts of law as, according to them, these cases were false and fabricated and could easily be won. The sources in the NAB said that the Chairman NAB had decided to adopt a proactive strategy to run the affairs of the department and in this connection he had taken advice from the legal minds as well. An official in the NAB informed on condition of anonymity that the Chairman NAB had never flouted the apex courts orders but being an introvert in nature, he did not play up his acts giving the impression of non-compliance of the courts orders. To substantiate his point, he said that except the Swiss cases on which the Chairman had sought advice of the Federal Ministry of Law, all the cases were reopened with a single stoke of pen even he had directed to restore the pre-NRO position of the cases regarding assets of President Zardari. He further said that despite working under the subordination of the Ministry of Law and Justice, the Chairman NAB had taken up the matter of reopening of the Swiss cases with the Government and had also sent a couple of reminders but still the response from the Ministry of Law and Justice is awaited. The sources in the department further said that despite having shortage of investigators and prosecutors in the department all the pending NAB cases were reopened and notices had been issued to the accused and warrants of all those who absconded were also issued. The sources further said that the Chairman NAB had prepared his case and in case the matter of the Swiss cases was not settled and he was summoned by the apex court as mentioned in last weeks hearing, he would present the same before the court.
