ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Tuesday questioned the National Accountability Bureau’s ‘double standards’ while hearing the bail application of a provincial information ministry official.
A three-member bench, headed by Justice Gulzar Ahmed, rejected the bail application of Sarang Latif, a section officer of Sindh’s information ministry.
During the proceedings, Justice Gulzar stated that NAB seemed to have a lack of interest in a Rs5 billion case as the anti-graft body does not have the same approach in every case and it seemed the institution was being “politicised”.
Justice Qazi Faiz Isa also criticised NAB intention of reaching a plea bargain in the case. He said the accountability body must form a uniform policy for all cases and not adopt a different approach from case to case.
