The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday decided to form a combined investigation team (CIT) to probe the long-running fake bank accounts case, according to a press statement issued by the anti-graft watchdog.The CIT will be headed by Director General NAB Rawalpindi Irfan Mangi and overseen by NAB Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal, the statement said, after a high-level meeting chaired by NAB chairman. The investigative team has already begun its probe into the mega case. “Investigation will be done in the light of Supreme Court’s judgement and evidence,” the statement said. “NAB believes in taking the case to its logical conclusion after a transparent probe. Media should refrain from speculation regarding the case,” it added.On January 7, the apex court had ordered NAB to initiate a fresh inquiry into the money laundering and fake bank accounts case. The Federal Investigation Agency is investigating 32 people, including former president Asif Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur, in relation to money laundering from fictitious accounts.Published in Daily Times, January 23rd 2019.
