PHC stops NAB from arresting Amir Muqam without warrants


PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court (PHC) Wednesday restrained the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) from arresting Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) leader Amir Muqam without arrest warrants
However, the high court allowed the NAB to continue investigation against Amir Muqam and directed it to furnish comments on his petition on the next hearing.
The court ruled that the NAB would have to issue arrest warrants for the petitioner ten days before his arrest, if it needed his custody.
The counsel for Amir Muqam told the court that the NAB had been carrying out investigation against his client for allegedly amassing assets disproportionate to his sources of income. “NAB summons people for inquiry and arrests them,” he added.
He pleaded with the bench to bar NAB from arresting Amir Muqam without the issuance of arrest warrants.
