Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmed on Tuesday slammed the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for its non-professional working behavior and prolonging the probe in various corruption cases.

While hearing a suo motu case related to clean drinking water supply in Sindh, CJP remarked that the anti-graft watchdog “has become an exploitation firm which keeps its prisoners in jail for years without evidence”.

During the hearing, Chief Justice Gulzar directed the commission to hand over its record and documents to the Sindh government.

The court dissolved the SC-mandated Sindh Water Commission and directed the authorities to submit a quarterly report on all the objectives that have been achieved so far.

The court further said that immediate steps should be taken for ensuring clean water supply through proper legislation.

CJP also remarked that huge amount of money spent in the name of clean drinking water plant installations but not a single RO plant was installed.

During the course of proceedings, NAB submitted report on alleged corruption in installation of RO plants.

The court ordered it to complete references regarding cases and other matters in a month.

Lashing out at the country’s anti-graft watchdog, CJP remarked “NAB does not have the ability to work. Its investigating officers simply did not have the capacity to carry out the investigation to its logical end,” he said.

On the water issue, the CJP said that there was no need to form a commission over the matter and added that the cases should be decided in one year but here NAB had taken six years.
