The National Accountability Bureau has filed an application at the Accountability Court in Islamabad to reopen the corruption cases after the Supreme Court struck down amendments to the National Accountability Law, sources said.

In its application, the anti-graft body asked for the reopening of 81 cases including cases against former President Asif Ali Zardari, former prime ministers Yousuf Raza Gilani and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, former CM Sindh Murad Ali Shah and former finance ministers Miftah Ismail and Ishaq Dar.

The anti-graft body attached a copy of the Supreme Court judgment which called for reopening the cases against public office holders that had been closed by the amendments.

On his last day as the CJP, Justice (Retd) Umar Ata Bandial declared all decisions handed by accountability courts under the amended law null and void.
