LAHORE - Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has issued instructions for removal of 160 officials of Revenue and Police Departments from their posts and their appointment as OSD besides directing the authorities concerned to approach courts for cancellation of bails of corrupt government officials. He was presiding over a meeting regarding performance and scope of Anti-corruption Establishment Punjab at Chief Minister's Secretariat, here on Tuesday. The CM said he would not allow anti-corruption establishment to sit idle while those officials against whom corruption cases have been registered move freely on bail and continue to occupy their posts. He directed to remove 91 officials of Revenue Department and 69 of Police and their appointment as OSD who are still working against their posts despite registration of cases against them on corruption charges. He said that a case was registered with Anti-Corruption Establishment after charges against an official are proved after formal inquiry, therefore, allowing him to continue to serve on the same post is strange. The CM directed Secretary Prosecution and Director General Anti-corruption that bails of all such elements against whom cases have been registered in Anti-Corruption Establishment should be got cancelled. Shahbaz said that Anti Corruption Establishment would have to perform as an effective, autonomous and strong institution of accountability. He directed appointment of honest and competent officers in Anti Corruption Establishment underscoring the need for improving the efficiency of the institution. He also directed to evolve viable suggestion for amending the law for extending the scope of Anti Corruption Establishment to corporations, autonomous bodies, local body institutions and elected members of district governments.
