The Supreme Court on Monday directed Chairman of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Admiral (retd) Fasih Bokhari to resubmit his reply to the SC registrar office after removal of objections.

According to a private television channel, a three-member bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry heard the contempt of court case registered against the NAB chief pertaining to the letter written to President Asif Ali Zardari.

During the hearing, the bench asked NAB Prosecutor-General K. K. Agha to explain why the NAB chairman, Bokhari had not submitted his reply. Agha responded that Bokhari had submitted his reply but the SC registrar office had raised objections to it.

The court then declared that no one was above the law and ordered the NAB chairman to resubmit his reply after removing the reservations identified by the registrar office. Subsequently, the hearing was adjourned till Tuesday.
