NAB reference against Gilani returned after amends


The Accountability Court on Thursday returned NAB’s reference against former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani for corruption in USF funds, terming it out of the court’s jurisdiction after the NAB amends.

Accountability court judge Azam Raza Khan returned the National Accountability Bureau’s reference against the PPP leader. The case, after the recent amends to the Accountability Act of 1999, is out of the court’s jurisdiction, the judge remarked.

Similarly, on September 13, six rental power references against former Premier and current Speaker of the National Assembly Raja Pervaiz Ashraf were returned by the accountability court citing the same NAB amendments.
