Under Section 19 of the National Accountability Ordinance, 1999, the notice issued, was sent to Rehman’s residence in Dera Ismail Khel.

The subject of the notice stated that the inquiry is against ex-MNA Rehman and others “regarding corruption and corrupt practices/accumulation of assets beyond means”.

NAB directed the JUI-F chief to appear before CIT (combined investigation team)-I at its regional office on October 1 at 11 am in order to record the JUI-F leaders statement/plea in the subject inquiry.

“Failure to comply with the notice may entail penal consequences as per the Schedule of NAO”, 1999, the NAB summons stated.

Note that the  NAB chairman, Justice (R) Javed Iqbal had approved the “authorisation of inquiry” against Rehman and others on Sept 14. An authorisation letter signed by Iqbal on Sept 18 was also forwarded to NAB KP for necessary action.

Earlier a month ago, NAB’s KP office had also issued a similar notice to a younger brother of Rehman, who is a government officer, directing him to appear before a CIT in an inquiry launched on multiple charges, including possessing illegal assets.
