NAB won’t probe tax evasion, bank default cases

ISLAMABAD: National Accountability Bureau chairman retired Justice Javed Iqbal on Sunday announced that none of the bureau’s officials would call any businessman directly for questioning and the NAB would not investigate cases of tax evasion and those related to bank default except the cases referred to it by banks.

Addressing a press conference, the NAB chairman said all under-investigation cases of tax evasion would be forwarded to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) so that the board itself could deal with such cases, while the bureau would first send a questionnaire to businessmen involved in corruption before calling them in case they failed to give a satisfactory reply.

The announcement was made by the anti-graft watchdog chief days after some business tycoons had shared their concerns regarding the accountability process with Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa in separate meetings.
