ISLAMABAD (APP) - The Islamabad High Court here Monday dismissed a plea by Chairman National Accountability Bureau against refusal of Accountability Court Rawalpindi, to stop proceedings on NAB request in a case involving corrupting charges against a deputy secretary in the Prime Minister Secretariat. A division bench comprising IHC Chief Justice Sardar Mohammad Aslam and Justice Raja Saeed Akram Khan rejected the plea on the ground that it was non-maintainable and the Chairman NAB was not an aggrieved party in the case. Tariq Mehmood Jehangiri, counsel for NAB, apprised the court that an inquiry against a deputy secretary in the Prime Minister's Secretariat was initiated on July 10, 2006 on complaints of acquiring assets through corrupt practices. The accused denied the allegations and the inquiry cleared the official after which the Chairman NAB under his powers in accordance with Section 9 (c) of the NAB Ordinance asked the Accountability Court II Rawalpindi to stop further proceedings in the case, the counsel said. But the court declined and continued the proceedings although the NAB Chairman had the authority to ask for closure of the case, he said.
