Lahore: Chairman of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal on Thursday said that attempts are being made to make NAB controversial.
Addressing a ceremony in Lahore, Chairman NAB said that corruption has ruined the country, adding that people should research the housing societies before investing. Bringing back the looted wealth is a difficult task but he hopes that the country’s system will gradually improve.
Chairman NAB vowed to continue the war against corruption and said that in the past four years, NAB filed about 1270 references in courts but making decisions on these references is not in his control as it is the job of the courts. The war started by NAB will continue.
The Head of the anti-graft watchdog said that the bureau has recovered land worth billions of rupees and clarified NAB keeps a record of all its recoveries.
He further said that people who claim that NAB officers take bribes should present evidence to him. "Attempts are being made to make the NAB controversial", he further stated.
Javed Iqbal also said that there are no holy cows in the country and if we really want to make the dream of Riyasat-e-Madina a reality, we have to adopt a policy of self-accountability.
