CJP Orders To Set up 120 Accountability Courts

ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday has announced to establish 120 accountability courts for early conclusion of pending corruption cases.

According to details, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmed has directed to wind up the under-hearing cases within three months. The purpose of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) law will fade away if the cases face delay, the top judge added.

Justice Gulzar also expressed resentment over ineffective performance of anti-graft watchdog and warned of closing its courts and declaring its law as unconstitutional.

The SC has strictly ordered to appoint judges in five accountability courts and speed up the proceedings.

Subsequently, the CJP has summoned attorney general, prosecutor general and law secretary in next hearing and also sought suggestions from NAB chairman regarding unsolved cases.
