PAC orders NAB to speed up cases

ISLAMABAD – Expressing concern over the slow speed with which corruption cases were being disposed of by accountability courts, the monitoring and implementation committee of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday to take the help of the attorney general to speed up the process.
The committee passed the orders when NAB Additional Director Abdul Hafeez informed it that NAB had moved a reference of Rs 1.7 billion against former Pakistan Automobile Corporation Limited (PACO) chairman Muzammal Niazi and managing director Javed Burki in the accountability court in 2002 and was still waiting for the verdict. The PAC was reviewing an audit objection regarding Ministry of Defence Production in which the Munitions Production director general had made an agreement with PACO in 1992 for the purchase of 400 trucks that had caused a loss of Rs 1.7 billion to the national exchequer because of malpractices by the erstwhile PACO top brass.
