ISLAMABAD (92 News) – NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal has said that the investigation of the white collar crime is a big challenge.

In a statement on Monday, he said that the NAB was not associated with any political party, group or individual, but with the state of Pakistan. "The NAB fully believes in the policy of accountability for all," he added.

The NAB chairman said that the role of the business community in the progress and economic prosperity of the country is very important. "We have sent the cases of income tax, sales tax and under invoice to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR)," he maintained.

He said that the NAB officers were dispensing their duty to eliminate corruption as national obligation.

"The accountability courts have convicted 1,194 accused during the last four years. The NAB has so far recovered Rs821 billion directly or indirectly since its establishment," he concluded.
