All Cases of Public Servants Restored as Supreme Court Suspended NAB Ammendment Bill

The Supreme Court of Pakistan, in a 2-1 verdict, nullified the amendments made to the NAB laws. The court granted approval to the petition filed by the PTI leader, who challenged the amendments enacted during the previous government’s tenure. As a result, corruption cases against public office holders, which were previously closed due to these amendments, will now be reinstated.

The Chief Justice and Justice Ahsan supported the maintainability of Imran’s plea, while Justice Shah held a dissenting opinion. This decision marks a significant development in the country’s accountability laws and sets the stage for the resumption of these corruption cases. It reflects the court’s commitment to upholding transparency and fighting against corruption in public office.

The ruling sends a strong message that no one is above the law and that accountability will be ensured. It is important to note that this verdict is subject to the interpretation and implementation of the law, and further legal proceedings may follow. The outcome of these cases will be closely watched, as it will have far-reaching implications for the future of accountability in Pakistan.
