Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) on Sept 15 announced its reserved verdict on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief’s petition and suspended the National Accountability Ordinance amendments.
The court, in its judgment, underscored the importance of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) clause pertaining to the Service of Pakistan, thus partially declaring the plea put forth by the Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) "admissible".
This landmark ruling has resulted in the restoration of references against politicians occupying public positions.
The ruling specifically reinstated the NAB clause pertaining to the Service of Pakistan.
The decision partially favored Chairman PTI's petitions, invalidating the clause excluding references up to 500 million from NAB's jurisdiction while maintaining the ability to file references against individuals holding public office.
