SC rejects plea to live broadcast NAB amendment case



ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court Thursday rejected the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government’s request for live broadcast of the hearing of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) amendment case.

The apex court dismissed the request filed by KP advocate general by 4-1 as Justice Athar Minallah dissented with the majority judgement.

The development comes as the SC is hearing the intra-court appeals filed by the federal and provincial governments against the NAB amendments struck down by the apex court.

The case is being heard by a five-member SC larger bench headed by Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa and comprising Justice Amin-ud-Din Khan, Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail, Justice Minallah and Justice Hasan Azhar Rizvi.
