ISLAMABAD (Agencies) The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected the plea of federal government and National Accountability Bureau seeking two days time for submitting reply regarding implementation of courts verdict about NRO. A seven-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry heard the case. The court demanded the return of millions of dollars plundered by leaders and bureaucrats, action against former attorney general Malik Qayyum and an increase in the number of anti-graft courts to speedily resolve cases. It summoned the chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Naveed Ahsan, to explain why he should not be punished for delaying the implementation of the ruling. Ahsans written explanation was rejected by the full bench of the supreme court, so he and a top law ministry official pledged to implement the verdict in letter and spirit by Wednesday. In his remarks, CJ Iftikhar observed that the time for more relaxation had expired and would give no more time. During the hearing, Justice Tariq Pervez asked Chairman NAB Naveed Ahsan why he did not implement the verdict on which the chairman replied he had been on leave since March 9. On this, the Chief Justice said 80 days had passed since the Dec 16, 2009 NRO verdict and inquired why he had not implemented it during this period. The Chairman NAB told the bench that the President enjoyed constitutional immunity. On this, CJ Iftikhar asked the Chairman not to advocate the case of President and remarked that the President had not claimed indemnity so far and if someone had any problem he could approach the court. Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry said in his remarks that Chairman NAB would be sent to jail on charges of contempt of the Supreme Court. The Chairman NAB pleaded the bench to apologise him for his misunderstanding but he was not apologised. It may be recalled that the apex court had served contempt notices on secretary establishment, joint secretary establishment, secretary interior, chairman NAB, acting chairman NAB and DG FIA for not implementing the verdict within 24 hours. The Supreme Court also directed Secretary Ministry of Law and Justice to initiate process for filing a reference against former AG Malik Abdul Qayyum. Justice (r) Aqil Mirza, Secretary Ministry of Law, appeared before the bench and maintained that he referred Maliks case to Pakistan Bar Council. He contended that he sent his case to PBC on two accounts as he was the first law officer, besides an advocate of the apex court. Chief Justice told him that they had great respect for him as a former judge but he should have taken steps against former AG. He told him to file reference under Section 9 of the NAB Ordinance and apprise the bench today (Wednesday). To benchs query, Aqil Mirza told that recommendations over removal of Prosecutor General NAB Dr Danishwar Malik had been sought from Attorney General. To another question about number of accountability courts, he said that except Punjab province for establishment of AC in Multan, they had sufficient number of courts. The bench directed him to file a report in this regard as well so that they could look into the issue.
