 Brig. Imtiaz, Adnan Khawja arrested, shifted to Adiala Jail

 Updated at: 2215 PST,  Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Brig. Imtiaz, Adnan Khawja arrested, shifted to Adiala Jail ISLAMABAD: Brig. Imtiaz (rtd) and Adnan Khawja of the OGDCL have been shifted to Adeala Jail who were earlier arrested from the courtroom today, Geo News reported Tuesday.

They were kept at Secretariat police station after arrest from the courtroom until the authorities received written order of the Supreme Court in the evening.

Both of them have been arrested from the court on orders by Supreme Court (SC) during the hearing of a case relating the implementation of National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).

A SC bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry heard the NRO implementation case today.

The Chief Justice said the judicial orders were being disparaged.

Later on, the CJ ordered the arrest of both the accused from the courtroom.

The apex court said the accused may submit the bail challans within three days.

It should be mentioned here that a three-member Supreme Court bench, Friday, issued notices to Adnan A Khawaja asking him to explain why he assumed two posts - Managing Director Oil and Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL) and Chairman NAVTEC - despite the fact that he, as NAB convict, was disqualified to assume such a post.

Also in the previous hearing, Brig (R) Imtiaz Ahmed, former DG ISI, who is also involved in NAB cases, was directed to appear in the next hearing.

It is pertinent to mention here that in the wake of the suo motu notice taken by the apex court and the subsequent revelations in the media, the government annulled the appointment of Adnan Khawaja as OGDCL Chairman, only a day after he assumed the charge.
