NAB writes to ECP over copter use


In this case, the PAC had given the NAB the go-ahead to request that the electoral watchdog investigate articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution.


These clauses specify the requirements for a parliamentarian’s eligibility and disqualification. The letter claims that NAB has concluded its investigation into the helicopter issue.

Sobia Shah, a representative of the KP Assembly, reported the incident to the KP area of the NAB. Imran Ahmad Khan Niazi is accused of “blatantly misusing assets of the Government of KP, including use of the official helicopter of the KP Chief Minister for personal purposes, causing enormous losses to the government exchequer, which is a violation of the relevant provisions of NAO, 1999,” according to the document.

In addition to Imran, 47 other politicians also used the K-P government’s chopper. The K-P administration was given the case by the NAB Executive Committee in order to recoup money from the helicopter customers.

Imran is one of 48 politicians who have used choppers and owes a total of Rs 60.39 million. The PAC has advised the NAB to file a lawsuit against the accused unlawful use enablers.

According to the news, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) addressed a statement to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Friday regarding the use of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government’s helicopter under the guidance of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

Imran Khan’s use of the helicopter, along with the utilization by more than 40 other political figures, was seen to be outside the scope of his authority, according to the NAB’s letter.

The case was reported to the KP government by the accountable agency’s board of executives in order to obtain payment from each user.
