ISLAMABAD - Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs had to bear the brunt for disqualification of National Accountability Bureau Chairman Justice (Retd) Deedar Hussain Shah due to performance of the federation counsel. The Supreme Court in the detailed judgement of NAB chairman had stated, The Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, Government of Pakistan in a manner depicting shallow and perfunctory understanding of the Constitution and the relevant law and in the process the former honourable judge of this court has suffered for no fault of his own. The sources in the law ministry told The Nation that proposal by Abdul Hafeez Pirzada to issue another notification for appointment of Justice (retd) Deedar Hussain Shah, while annulling the earlier, had dented the ministry credibility. The judgment mentions, It is because of his two appointments to that office, both botched and messed up by that ministrys wrong legal advice to the relevant quarters, that he now stands disqualified to be appointed to that office again on account of the provision regarding non-extendable period contained in section 6(b)(i) of the National Accountability Ordinance, 1999, as interpreted through the judgments of this court in Bank of Punjab vs Haris Steel Industries and in the present case. Pirzada during the proceedings had submitted before the court that the fresh appointment of Justice (retd) Deedar as chairman National Accountability Bureau on 9th February, 2011 had been made by the President of Pakistan on the advice of the Prime Minister and, therefore, the constitutional lacuna, if any, in his earlier appointment as such on 8th October, 2010 stood properly removed and rectified. The sources said that the government was considering that whether it should file review petition on the courts order against the appointment of Chairman NAB or not.
