National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal has said that the top most priority of the bureau is to ensure merit, transparency and take cases of mega corruption to their logical conclusion as per the law.
Chairing a meeting to analyse monthly performance of regional bureaus on Monday, the NAB chief said that the bureau was committed to making the country corruption free. “All resources are being utilised to root out corruption from the country.”
During the meeting, performance of regional bureaus, prosecution, operation division and all departments of NAB was reviewed.
He said corruption was the main hurdle in the progress of the country. The NAB, he said, had deposited Rs 297 billion in the national exchequer since its inception. He said that the anti-corruption watchdog had prescribed a time limit for deciding cases, inquiries and investigations.
Moreover, Justice (r) Javed Iqbal said that the anti-graft body had established over 55,000 character building societies in various universities/colleges aimed at educating the youth about ill-effects of corruption.
He said the performance of regional bureaus of NAB was being monitored on quarterly, biannually and yearly basis. A monitoring and evaluation system had been devised in this regard.
The chairman appreciated the efforts of regional bureaus for elimination of corruption and directed them to redouble their efforts by adopting ‘Accountability for All’ policy.
