Former Attorney General Abdul Qayyum stated in the Supreme Court that the then President Pervez Musharraf directed to end the Swiss case on which he wrote letter to the Swiss court to halt the case.

Abdul Qayyum was summoned by the Supreme Court where he told that Asif Ali Zardari filed petition in the Sindh High Court under NRO on February 15, 2008 and the court ordered to end all local and foreign cases against Asif Zardari. Pervez Musharraf directed to act upon the court orders.

The SC remakes on it that only Chairman NAB has authority to take back the cases as per NAB Ordinances. Chairman NAB said that prosecutor general of NAB was consulted but only attorney general had approached the Swiss courts. The CJP asked that NAB should inform if it can do anything otherwise it should shut its office.
