Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday while comparing the twelve years of performance of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) said that the nation benefits when state institutions are allowed to function independently without political interference.

Taking to his Twitter handle, Imran Khan said

The following facts reveal how the nation benefits when state institutions are allowed to function independently without political interference. Total recoveries by NAB in 2019 & 2020 amount to Rs.389 bn in comparison to previous 10 yrs (2008-2018) recoveries of Rs.104 bn.

Imran Khan added that:

 These were 10 yrs of dark ages under corrupt rulers. Again, Anti Corruption in Punjab recovered Rs.206 bn in 27 months in comparison to only Rs.3 bn in the past 10 yrs under corrupt rulers. These are clear indications of accountability working when institutions are independent.

Back in October 2020, Chairman NAB Justice (Retd) Javed Iqbal has said that those who committed corruption will be held accountable for their wrongdoings.

Javed Iqbal said that NAB is committed to deal with money laundering and mega corruption cases on transparency and merit while all resources are being utilized for the arrest of fugitives and absconders.

The Chairman said that the eradication of corruption from the country is the top priority of NAB.
