National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal has said that the accountability watchdog arrested 350 accused persons during the last seven months and recovered about Rs 2,200 million, with overall convictions of 77 percent.
The NAB chief, in a statement, said the institution had been rejuvenated to eradicate corruption and he directed all the director generals of the bureau for not sparing any corrupt, dragging them in the dock.
He said the NAB had nothing to do with elections, and it was working in accordance with law and would continue to perform its duties as per its mandate.
“The allegations of rigging before the elections have been leveled just to tarnish the image and credibility of NAB. Such allegations cannot frustrate NAB’s firm resolve and commitment to eradicate corruption from the country, which is the voice of the whole nation to make the country corruption free,” he said.
