ISLAMABAD: Law Minister Farooq H Naek has said the PPP government is not filing new cases against Sharif Brothers as it does not believe in politics of victimization. Talking to newsmen outside the Parliament house in Islamabad on Wednesday, he said some old cases are pending with the NAB against the Sharif brothers and the prosecutors should act according to the constitution.
The Law Minister said the PPP government adhering to the Charter of Democracy and its manifesto would abolish the NAB and a new law would be introduced in conformity with the law and constitution to hold the public office holders accountable to the public. For this purpose a committee has been constituted to revamp the entire NAB law and bring it under the supervision of high courts of the provinces.
When asked about the fresh oath taken by some of the deposed judges, he said nobody should raise objections if the sacked judges take fresh oath under the constitution to serve the people. He said all the deposed judges could assume their responsibilities without any discrimination by taking fresh oath under the constitution. He made it clear that this would not validate the acts of November 3 and all amendments in the constitution would be carried out by the Parliament.
He said functional judiciary is the need of the hour to provide prompt justice to the people. Fast track and evening courts would be established to ensure timely disposal of cases and protect rights of the common man. Responding to a question about live burial of women in Balochistan, Farooq Naek said an investigation is being carried out into the incident and culprits would be given severe punishment.-SANA
