The founder of PTI provides a written response in the NAB modification case.

Following hearing arguments from all sides, a five-member Supreme Court larger bench, led by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa, reserved its decision regarding the review petition filed by the government in the NAB amendments case. The judges are Justice Aminuddin Khan, Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail, Justice Athar Minallah, and Justice Hasan Azhar Rizvi.

According to specifics, in a written submission to the Supreme Court (SC), PTI founder Imran Khan begged the court to strike down the NAB modifications, arguing that they were “against” the law.

The PTI founder responded in writing, stating that states that are Banana Republics do not even amend laws to save people from corruption. He stated that when changing legislation, the Parliament shouldn’t go beyond what is specified in the Constitution.

In addition, the PTI founder accused the NAB of displaying neklace valued at Rs3.18 billion, when it was only worth Rs18 million, in order to incriminate him in the Toshakhana case.

It is important to note that, in response to the PTI founder’s plea, the Supreme Court invalidated changes made to NAB legislation.

Imran Khan’s appeal contesting changes to the nation’s accountability legislation enacted during the previous Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)-led administration was granted by the supreme court in a majority 2-1 decision.

Following the changes to NAB laws, graft cases against public office holders were closed; however, the top court reopened them.

The Federation of Pakistan, the National Accountability Bureau, and the founder of PTI were named as respondents in the federal government’s review plea, which was submitted in the case under the SC Practice and Procedure Law.

The federal government begged the SC to reconsider its ruling, citing the NAB modifications as not violating any fundamental rights. The plea declared, “The Parliament has the right to enact laws.”
