ISLAMABAD (Muslim Times) – An accountability court on Tuesday has ordered former advisor to Prime Minister (PM) on parliamentary affairs Babar Awan and former Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf to submit surety bonds of Rs0.2 millioin each in Nandipur power project scandal.
Babar Awan, Pervez Ashraf and five others appeared before the accountability court where Justice Mohammad Arshad Malik resumed the hearing of the reference.
The court ordered the accused to submit surety bonds and summoned them again on October 2.
The reference was filed by NAB over alleged delay in the project inflicting whooping Rs27 bn loss to national exchequer.
Soon after the reference was filled, Babar Awan had tendered resignation from his post.
In his resignation to Prime Minister Imran Khan, the PTI leader said that he has resigned from his post to prove the allegations against him as baseless.
Babar Awan had stated that the rule of law should begin from him, adding that he is not one of those who stick to their posts despite cases against them.
