Court: SC summons record of appointment of PM’s son-in-law in WB
ISLAMABAD: A three-member Supreme Court bench on Wednesday sought record of appointment of Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf’s son-in-law as country’s Executive Director in the World Bank in Washington and issued notices to all concerned parties.
The bench comprising Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali, Justice Tariq Parvez and Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan was hearing a suo moto case against appointment of PM’s son-in-law in the World Bank in violation of rules. The court issued notices to PM’s son-in-law Raja Azeemul Haq, Secretary Establishment Division and Secretary Finance directing them to submit record of appointment.
After conducting preliminary hearing, the court adjourned the matter till second week of January, 2013. The suo moto notice was taken into the matter on the media reports. Earlier, the PM’s son-in-law Raja Azeemul Haq was serving as an additional secretary in the PM Secretariat. According to media reports, the PM appointed his son-in-law to the post by using his discretionary powers.
The PM had approved the summary for appointment despite resistance shown by Finance Minister Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh, who tried to convince the PM to change his decision. The finance minister had told the PM that his son-in-law was “junior” for such an important position.
Economic Affairs Division EAD, the department which was asked to formally move the summary by the PM’s Principal Secretary Ayub Qazi, had also opposed the move. The department had suggested that a headhunting committee or selection board should be formulated under the Establishment Division to select a suitable candidate.
