ISLAMABAD Ministry of Law and Justice has started weighing options to grill and tame Chairman National Accountability Bureau and for the purpose he would likely to be issued with a show-cause notice from the Ministry soon. Sources in the Ministry informed TheNation that Ministry was planning to reprimand Chairman NAB Naveed Ahsan for exceeding his powers while writing to the Swiss Government for reopening of the cases against President Asif Ali Zardari in the light of the Supreme Court of Pakistans judgement in the NRO case. When contacted the sources in NAB admitted tension between the Ministry and NAB as in most of the cases in recent past the Chairman NAB had complied with the apex court orders and not followed the dictates of the Ministry of Law and Justice. The sources informed that Federal Minister for Law and Justice Dr. Babar Awan was not comfortable with the department as on a number of occasions the directions of the Ministry were not followed by the Chairman NAB. The sources said that a fortnight back Ministry of Law and Justice had sought the possession of the record of the Swiss cases but the Chairman NAB had refused to comply with saying that the relevant record was brought back here from London on the direction of Supreme Court and now he would not hand over the same to the Ministry without the prior permission of the apex court. The Ministry was also not happy with the Chairman for his browbeating of the NAB prosecutors who had shown laxity in the cases against the politicians belonging to the ruling party and made it clear to them that while handling the corruption cases no negligence and laxity on part of the officials would be tolerated. The sources further said that Chairman NAB Naveed Ahsan was planning to come up with a strict action against the lawyers who had allegedly taken heavy bribe from the Bank of Punjab loan scam accused Sh. Mohammad Afzal and others, for getting their case settled from the apex court, another major reason of unrest in the Ministry of Law and Justice. When contacted the NAB spokesman expressed his ignorance about the issuance of any show-cause to the Chairman and also declined to comment on the visible tension between the Ministry and NAB. On the other hand, Babar Awan was not available for comments and when he was approached on his cell phone some of his assistant said that the minister was busy and he would call back as soon as he would be free.
