ISLAMABAD In a high-level meeting held under the head of Chairman National Accountability Bureau Naveed Ahsan here on Tuesday, it was decided to move swiftly for reopening of the Swiss cases and to accelerate implementation of the Supreme Court verdict on the NRO. The process of dispatching a formal request to the Swiss government would be made in next couple of days and all the legal and constitutional formalities in this connection would likely to be completed today. The meeting also gave approval for framing a reference against former Attorney General Malik Qayyum for exceeding his powers and moved a request for withdrawal of the Swiss cases against President Zardari and others. Sources in NAB informed TheNation that in the meeting crucial decisions were taken regarding the reopening of the cases withdrawn under the NRO, including the corruption cases involving $60 million public money in Switzerland. The sources further informed that the Chairman NAB, who had cut short his leave and resumed duty on Tuesday made it clear that the Bureau could not wait for any advice from any quarter and would write to the Swiss government for reopening of the cases withdrawn by the government following the introduction of NRO. The sources said that it was further decided in the meeting that more NAB courts would be opened forthwith to expeditiously deal with the corruption cases withdrawn under the NRO. Similarly, the strength in both prosecution and legal branches of the department would also be enhanced. It was further informed by the sources that the letter for reopening of the cases would be dispatched to the Government of Switzerland in a day or so and in this connection the modus operandi was also devised. These sources in the department further disclosed that now the department would take up the vital issues directly with the officials concerned and would not wait for the advice from the Federal Law Ministry, which had put the things in loop over the past couple of months. The sources said that earlier the Chairman NAB had repeatedly written letters to the Federal Law Ministry for decision on reopening of the Swiss cases but the authorities in the Law Ministry remained unmoved. During the meeting, the Chairman NAB also admonished the NAB officials of the prosecution section for their alleged leaning toward the cronies of President Zardari and made it clear that in the light of the apex courts judgement, they were bound to serve the state and not any individual or personality. Meanwhile, in another major development a two-member team, which had taken possession of the record of the Swiss cases from Pakistan High Commissioner Wajid Shamsul Hassan a couple of days back had reached here with the record. The sources in the department informed that the record was brought to the NAB Headquarters and was in safe custody.
