ISLAMABAD: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice ® Javed Iqbal on Wednesday emphasised the need for improvement in the working of the organisation through efficient, effective and expeditious disposal of white-collar crime cases.
An improved infrastructure, rationalised workload and timelines had been prescribed for efficient, effective and expeditious disposal of cases from complaint verification up to the filing of a reference in the accountability court, the chairman said while presiding over a meeting that reviewed the performance of the NAB headquarters and regional offices.
The chairman was of the view that corruption was the root cause of all evils and NAB was committed to eradicating corruption with iron hands by using all its resources.
He asked NAB’s director generals to conduct all complaint verifications, inquiries and investigations in accordance with merit and law.
The chairman said that NAB’s “accountability for all” policy for eradication of corruption had started yielding excellent results.
He said the operational methodology for processing the cases had been reviewed so that NAB could come up to the expectations of the nation to eradicate corruption from the country and recover the looted money from corrupt elements.
Since its inception, NAB had deposited Rs303 billion in the national exchequer, he added.
Justice Iqbal said that the youth were the future of Pakistan. NAB in collaboration with the Higher Education Commission had established more than 50,000 character building societies in all leading universities and colleges in the country to build an effective edifice against corruption, he added.
