Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had recovered Rs484 billion in the last three years (2018-2020) in contrast to Rs290 billion recovered during 1999-2017.
“When govt does not protect the criminals and lets investigation agencies and accountability work without interference, it shows in the results being achieved,” the premier remarked on Twitter.
On May 21, it was reported that the country’s anti-graft body claimed to have recovered Rs23.85 billion in the fake bank accounts scam.
NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal, chaired a meeting at its headquarters to review the performance of the anti-graft body’s Rawalpindi wing.
NAB Deputy Chairman Hussain Asghar, Prosecutor General Accountability Syed Asghar Haider, Operations DG Zahir Shah, NAB Rawalpindi DG Irfan Naeem Mangi, and other senior officers were present in the meeting.
