Govt to expedite accountability process: Faisal Javed
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Faisal Javed Khan on Monday said that the government will expedite the process of accountability to make Pakistan a corruption free state.
Speaking during the Senate session, Faisal Javed said people’s first and foremost demand is to eradicate corruption, money laundering and ensure across the board accountability.
The senator said that the incumbent government is taking adequate measures to curb money laundering and corruption.
He criticized the former governments for carrying out legislation to hide corruption and termed the charter of democracy a deal between two parties.
He said the asset recovery unit had traced assets of Pakistanis worth billion of rupees in Dubai, which had been acquired through fake accounts and money laundering.
Earlier on October 11, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry had said the government decided to expedite investigation into high-profile cases currently taken up by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
Addressing a press briefing, the minister said, “We are trying the country to stand on its own feet and some strong steps are to be taken in this regard.”
Mr. Chaudhry said the newly-launched housing scheme was completely transparent and it would help the poor have their own homes. A registration form has been made available for Rs 250, he added.
The minister said he was in his personal capacity submitting a resolution in the National Assembly, seeking constitution of a committee to probe people involved in corruption.
