Karachi: NAB clarifies arrest of Call Mate case accused
KARACHI: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had arrested Nadeem Ahmad Advocate on the non bailable warrants of arrest issued by the Accountability Court, Karachi. The accused side is misleading the media that he was arrested without any arrest warrants, said a press release issued by NAB here on Monday. NAB arrested the accused from his home when he was trying to escape the scene. NAB is an independent organization and takes actionagainst every corrupt person without any influence and under the provisions of its law. In this case, the accused Nadeem Ahmed Advocate ex-Director Callmate Telips Telecom Limited (CTTL) is involved in corruption of Rs. 5 billion by cheating public at large.
Nadeem Ahmed was one of the seven accused persons in this case. On April 30, a reference was signed by the Chairman NAB against seven accused persons including Nadeem Ahmad. Arrest warrants were initially issued against six accused persons including Nadeem Ahmed on May 29 by the Accountability Court No. IV. Arrest warrants against five accused persons were repeated on June 14 as one of the accused Hasan Jamil Ansari was arrested by NAB. So, pinning this arrest with judiciary is wrong, NAB press release said. The accused advocate’s role in the restoration of judiciary may be of worth mentioning but good work done on any issue does not given anyone a certificate to play havoc with other matters, it added.
