LAHORE - The All Pakistan Clerks Association (APCA) Anti Corruption Unit alleged the Anti Corruption Establishment (ACE) was plagued by corruption because Director General Abid Javed appointed corrupt officers.

Without naming ACE officers, the association members said during a hurriedly-called meeting on Thursday that these officers were facing inquiries over corruption charges.

Speaking on the occasion, Irfan Manzoor, the association president, said the DG appointed corrupt officers who were influencing inquiries and minting money from the people.

It was alleged that the ACE management was very strict regarding even fake complaints against employees and office bearers of APCA.

They said that recently director ACE suspended one senior clerk Zahoor without holding inquiry against him.

Similarly office superintendent, Ali Akbar was transferred from Bahawalpur to Lahore without any allegation. Due to transfer the education and schooling of his children was suffering badly. They demanded the cancellation of his transfer so that education and schooling of his children could not suffer.
