CM chaired a high level meeting on anti corruption establishment

Chitral Times Report

A meeting held in CM house, with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak in the chair, has decided that the officials working in the Anti Corruption Establishment (ACE) on deputation basis would not be inducted. They will be repatriated to police and other parent departments as soon as fresh professionals would be employed for which approval for creating 197 new posts has also been granted by the meeting.

The ACE has also been directed to avoid harassing the public servants and uphold respect and dignity of them during investigation and inquiry process as any kind of harassment could harm motivation and other working traits of the government functionaries, the meeting observed.

The Parliamentary Secretary for the ACE and Chief Minister Inspection Team, Dr. Haider Ali, Special Assistant to the CM on Planning & Development, Mian Khaleequr Rahman, Chief Secretary Amjad Ali Khan, Secretary Home Department, Arbab Muhammad Arif, Director ACE, Ziaullah Toru and concerned officers of Finance, P&D and other departments also attended the meeting.

The meeting held detailed discussion to explore ways and means for making the ACE more strong, independent and effective department to check corrupt practices in the government departments and took various important decisions in this respect.

Considering a proposal about grant of rewards and incentives to the officials of the ACE on the pattern of NAB, FBR or the forthcoming Whistle Blower Act of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government, it was decided in the meeting that 25 percent of the embezzled or misappropriated amount so recovered would be given to the officials concerned. However, the finance department was directed to review fixation of an upper limit for such awards.
