ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday ordered to issue bailable arrest warrants for National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) Chairman Usman Yusuf Mobeen for not acting upon the court orders, Aaj News reported.
In 2010, the high court had ordered Nadra to provide police and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) access to its biometric system and revenue record. The court was ruling on a petition filed by lawyer Waqas Malik, in which he had requested the court to bound Nadra for provision of access to its biometric system.
As NADRA failed to comply with the court orders, later in 2016, the petitioner had filed a contempt of court plea against Nadra.
In today’s hearing, Justice Noor-ul-Haq Qureshi ordered police to arrest and produce NADRA chairman before the court on March 3.
