This is the news of the century. The Swiss accounts containing millions of dollars of hard-earned white money of the President of Pakistan, which were center of attention in the infamous NRO case, have been found empty and no one, not even the NAB, has any clue where the money has gone. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday submitted a report on the Swiss cases to a 17-member larger bench of the Supreme Court (SC). The report that was submitted by the newly appointed NAB Chairman Deedar Shah, claims that there is no trace of money in the Swiss accounts of the president.
The Express Tribune has reported that the NAB report contains details about the controversial Swiss accounts, NAB cases and steps taken by acting NAB chairman Javed Zia on the directives of Supreme Court. Sources doubted the credibility of the new chairman, saying that he has no information about the money in the Swiss accounts. Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry had earlier directed NAB to submit a list of cases pending in foreign courts which had been withdrawn under the NRO. The chief justice had also directed NAB to trace over $60 million in the Swiss accounts case so that it could be brought back to the country.
The report will made public on Wednesday.
