The Supreme Court (SC) dismissed a contempt of court case on Thursday against officials of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) after they submitted an unconditional written apology.
In August last year, the anti-graft watchdog’s officials arrested Saif-ur-Rehman, owner of a private company involved in the Madaraba scandal, from the SC’s premises. The accused had come to the SC seeking pre-arrest bail.
However, the NAB officials apprehended him when he reached the top court’s parking area. A three-judge SC bench, headed by then acting chief justice Umar Ata Bandial, heard the case and ordered disciplinary action against the officials involved in the incident. During Thursday’s proceedings, NAB officials sought unconditional apology for the arrest of the accused from the court’s premises.
