ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Monday warned the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) that if Karkey electric power generation ship leaves the Karachi port without paying the outstanding amount, the Bureau’s chairman would be responsible.A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and including Justice Gulzar Ahmed and Justice Azmat Saeed was hearing the case of non-implementation of Supreme Court judgment on Rental Power Projects and they disposed off a complaint made by Faisal Saleh Hayat against Karkey.At the outset of the hearing, NAB Director General (Operational) Shahbaz Bhatti informed the court that as per their calculation, $120 million are outstanding against the ship-mounted Turkish power plant. But NAB Prosecutor General K K Agha contended that ultimately the NAB chairman has to decide about the amount.The chief justice asked petitioner Faisal Saleh Hayat and the NAB to sit down at the Registrar’s Office and calculate the exact amount due against the Karkey and inform the bench about it after the break. After the interval Bhatti said, at present, they have found out approximately $120 million against the Karkey power project.He informed the court that the NAB statement has been countersigned by its Chairman Fasih Bukhari. The court said if at later stage the due amount is revised up by the NAB, it shall be responsibility of the chairman to recover the additional amount as well.The chief justice observed that Faisal Saleh Hayat has unearthed a big scam in the power sector. He said nobody can be allowed to make away after looting the country, warning the NAB that it will be responsible if Karkey leaves the country without offering assurance of dues’ repayment.Prosecutor General NAB KK Agha said Turkey’s ambassador also contacted for the return of the power plant. Justice Gulzar Ahmed remarked, “If so, should we give entire Pakistan to Turkey?” adding the NAB is entangled in the statistics even after the lapse of even eight months.The chief justice said the rulings on corruption cases are meant only to prevent such incidents from happening in future; however, it would be deplorable if the spate of such occurrences do not cease. “This has become the deterrence for other departments, but if... nothing has been done (despite the court judgement) then we can’t do anything else.” The CJP said besides civil liability, there is also criminal liability in the RPPs case.Justice Gulzar remarked that according to the agreement the barge mounted power plant is the property of Karkey in Pakistan and inquired from the NAB prosecutor general that if it would leave without paying the outstanding amount then how they would recover the money. Agha said they would take bank guarantee from Karkey. Upon that the honourable judge said the guarantee should be arranged inside Pakistan and not somewhere else.The court noted that the NAB has already given an undertaking that unless the entire outstanding amount is paid, the ship would not be allowed to sail from Pakistan. K K Agha said they have withdrawn the undertaking, adding under section 23 of NAO they have cautioned the Karkey management not to take the ship from Pakistan without paying the entire amount. On that note, the chief justice disposed of Faisal Saleh Hayat’s complaint in respect of Karkey power plant.
