NAB not to stop proceedings against mega corruption over threats: Javed
PESHAWAR (92 News) – National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal on Wednesday assured that the anti-graft watchdog would not stop proceedings against the mega corruption cases over threats.
Javed Iqbal visited the NAB’s regional office in Peshawar where Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s (KP) NAB Director General (DG) Farmanullah Khan briefed him regarding certain cases of corruption.
On the occasion, Javed Iqbal openly defied what he termed as ‘threats’ being given to their department for proceeding with cases of mega corruption, and asserted that the department would response to the ‘organized propaganda’ with their performance and determination.
The NAB chairman said that his first priority was to complete the pending cases and as much as 44 references were filed in this regard. “The pending cases of corruption will proceed with transparency and according to the Constitution,” he added.
Meanwhile, he also called for strict implementation of ‘zero tolerance’ against corruption.
