Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Friday summoned Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah in a case pertaining to money-laundering of billions of rupees through fake bank accounts.
The chief justice, who headed a larger bench of the apex court, was hearing the case at the Karachi registry.
He issued directives for the chief minister to meet him in his chamber today.
At the outset of the hearing, the CJP remarked that the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the money-laundering scam had complained about non-cooperation on the part of the Sindh government in its investigation and asked why he was receiving such complaints.
FIA director general Bashir Memon said the JIT faced difficulties at first but received relevant documents from the department concerned after the court’s intervention.
