SC rejects NAB chairman plea for exemption from attendance.

ISLAMABAD -- Supreme Court (SC) has sought reply from chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Fasih Bokhari in the contempt of court case with reference to a controversial letter written by him to the president.

SC bench led by the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry took up the case for hearing Tuesday.

Chairman NAB appeared in the court and he told to it that he had appointed Naveed Yousuf Mirza his counsel. He prayed the court to allow him some time to prepare the reply in connection with show cause notice served to him with reference to contempt of court case. He also requested the court to exempt him from his attendance in the court due to his NAB related preoccupations.

Court remarked "we cannot grant exemption to you as this case is against you and it is essential for you to appear in the court. However, we are allowing you time till February, 18 and you should file you reply till this date".

Court adjourned hearing of the case till February, 18.
