The Lahore High Court on Tuesday turned down the bail plea filed by Jang Geo Editor-in-Chief Mir Shakilur Rahman.During today’s hearing, the prosecutor for the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Faisal Raza Bukhari, told the court that the bureau’s chairman had been informed of all facts regarding the case via video link. He added that the NAB chairman was being given all updates regarding the case and the investigation was being conducted on his instructions. Meanwhile, counsel for the petitioner Aitzaz Ahsan argued before the court that his client should be granted bail as he was ailing and old. He added that MSR “was not running off anywhere” and that the court can asks for a surety bond for its satisfaction. Aitzaz Ahsan also told the court that NAB had not mentioned anything about the video link in the response it had submitted to the court. He also noted that the bureau was admitting that the case was in an inquiry stage. “NAB is also admitting that the business policy applies on MSR,” argued Ahsan. He also reminded the court that an arrest warrant was issued while the inquiry was still being done. The lawyer also urged the court to ask for the video recording of the investigation proceedings against Mir Shakir-u-Rehman. Meanwhile, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has announced the withdrawal of arrest warrant against JUI-F leader Akram Durrani, who is being investigated in multiple corruption references. The bureau issued the warrant on December 18.
