Gilani refuses to appear before NAB

06 December, 2012

ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has refused to appear before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in a case pertaining to the implementation of the controversial National Reconciliation Ordinance.

The bureau had summoned the former prime minister on the directives of the Supreme Court for appointing Adnan A Khawaja as managing director of the Oil and Gas Development Company Limited in Sept 2010 in violation of rules.

The Supreme Court had declared Khawaja appointment as null and void.

In this respect, a counsel for the former premier said that the Constitution awarded immunity to Gilani, who had been summoned by the NAB to record his statement in the case on Dec 11.

Earlier on Tuesday, Prime Minister's Adviser on Political Affairs Fawad Chaudhry, who also held the post when Gilani was in office, had stated that under Article 248 of the Constitution no court proceedings could be held against the president, prime minister, governors and ministers.

End.
