NAB moves SC for cancellation of Javed Latif’s bail

ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court (SC) for cancellation of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) leader Mian Javed Latif’s bail. Javed Latif’s mother, sons and four brothers have also been made respondents in the petition filed by the NAB. The NAB had taken the stance that the bureau was conducting investigation against the PML-N leader and the Lahore High Court’s decision was an interference in the interrogation.

The anti-graft body requested the apex court to declare the LHC decision of December 26 as null and void. It is pertinent to mention here the politician has been accused of making billions of rupees’ assets in the name of his family members under section 9 (a) of the National Accountability Ordinance (NAO 1999). The assets of MNA Javed Latif exponentially increased after coming into politics. The NAB stated that Javed Latif before coming into politics owned a 12-marla inherited house in Habib Colony, Sheikhupura, which had now been extended up to 1.5 acres. – APP
