National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal on Wednesday said that no one would be made Double Shah now and no one can influence anti-graft watchdog’s investigation.
Addressing a ceremony after distributing Rs730 million among the victims of a housing society on Ferozpur Road, he said that the corruption is root cause of all evils, adding that the anti-graft agency has become an active organization of anti-corruption.
The NAB chairman went on to say that the ratio of criminals being awarded sentence by the trial court over Bureau’s cases has reached 70 percent.
“A sum of Rs303 billion have been deposited in the national exchequer by the anti-graft watchdog since its formation,” he said.
Justice (r) Javed Iqbal said: “Corruption references worth Rs900 billions are being heard by the courts. The NAB is the first chairman of SAARC Anti-Corruption.”
