ISLAMABAD - Chairman National Accountability Bureau Admiral (Retd) Fasih Bokhari stressed the need of incorporation of their experience as ace accountability department in the country into the formulation of new accountability law for the country, which is in the process of making right now in the National Assembly. He expressed these views while talking to a team of Transparency International, which called on him under the head of Sohail Muzaffar here on Monday. Both sides discussed the process of accountability and the areas of mutual cooperation between the two organisations to root out corruption from the society. Various issues related to accountability, anti-corruption laws and awareness in regulatory mechanisms were discussed in the meeting. Chairman NAB informed TI that NAB was carrying out a comparative study of the Accountability Bill against the different similar enactments of other countries. He stressed that the experience of NAB had not been considered in the drafting of the bill. A seminar, he informed is proposed in this connection wherein all the stakeholders would be invited for soliciting their views on improvements to the Accountability Bill. Revamping the lacunae in laws and rules that allow space for corruption has been lacking in the prevailing mechanism to check it, the chairman NAB added. The Chairman stressed the need for capacity building in financial forensic capabilities for the NAB investigators. The chairman explained that the huge financial volume of corruption injected into third world countries through kickbacks is not being considered in the international index surveys of TI. This leads to a misconception that the supplier countries are clean and only the Third World is corrupt. Adil Gilani, the Advisor TIP stressed the need to ensure implementation of punitive clauses of PPRA Rules. He appreciated the NAB Accountability Bill review initiative and offered support for the seminar event. Mr. Gilani also apprised the NAB participants of the efforts made at the global level to meet the menace of corruption and the support that could be made available to NAB by TI. The TI delegation included Sohail Muzaffar, Adil Gillani, Saad Rashid, Executive Director, Dr. Ayesha Siddiqa, Trustee, and Wajid Jawad; while the Deputy Chairman, DG A&P and Director NACS attended from NAB.
