NAB Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal Corruption is the mother of all evils which is one of the main hurdles in the progress and prosperity of the country. NAB was established to eradicate corruption and to recover looted money from corrupt elements and deposit in national exchequer. NAB under the dynamic leadership of Honorable Mr. Justice Javed Iqbal, Chairman NAB through its “Accountability for All” policy has not only apprehended big fish, besides recovering Rs. 466 billion looted money from corrupt elements and deposited all looted money in the national exchequer. NAB not only vowed to ensure accountability of all and sundry but also successfully implemented his policy across the board. NAB has persistently monitors the performance of NAB Headquarters as well as all Regional Bureaus of NAB. The officers are being conveyed about their strengths and weaknesses in order to have better performance but also told to overcome their shortcomings as NAB strongly believes in Self Accountability under the dynamic leadership of Honorable Mr. Justice Javed Iqbal, Chairman NAB. NAB had itself prescribed ten months time to complete the process of initiating complaint versification, inquiries and investigations to filing a reference and if need the same duration is increased in order to have a logical conclusion of mega corruption cases. NAB has further activated prosecution and operation divisions of NAB by appointing new investigation officers and law officers and provided them training on modern lines in order to inquire and pursue all cases vigorously in respected courts including cases of white collar crimes. An accused can apply for plea bargain as per clause 25-B of NAB ordinance, 1999. NAB receives the application of plea bargain request who voluntarily submit his application to NAB for plea bargain after seeing the documentary and solid proofs of corruption in NAB. NAB examines the plea bargain application of the accused as per law. The liability of the accused is determined on the basis of his looted money with markup and after determination total liability of the accused, NAB informed total liability to accused and forward the request of Plea Bargain of the accused for plea bargain along with his total liability for decision of the respective Accountability Court. The respective Accountability Court accord the final approval of plea bargain request of the accused. In the respected Accountability Court, the accused admits his guilt before the respected Accountability Court. The respected Accountability Court after hearing arguments of both sides, gave a decision for acceptance of a plea bargain of the accused. Therefore, it is not correct that NAB is the authority for acceptance of plea bargain request of the accused in any case. The Honorable Accountability Courts approves the plea bargain of the accused requesting for approval of the plea bargain. The accused whose plea bargain is accepted by Accountability Court not only confesses his guilt in writing but also agrees to return all looted money and submits first tranche of his total looted liability in the respected Accountability Court as per law. Plea Bargain is prevalent in over thirty countries including the USA, UAE and other countries of the world. In the plea bargain, the accused only does not go to jail but he faces all other punishments under the relevant laws applied on the culprit. A plea bargainer lost honor and dignity in the society. After a plea bargain, the government servant is dismissed from government service immediately after striking a plea bargain. He becomes disqualified for Government service for his remaining life. A politician becomes disqualified for 10 years. He could hold public office or contest elections for ten years. In the case of a businessman, after a plea bargain, he could not obtain a loan from a scheduled bank for ten years. The whole amount recovered from a plea bargain is deposited in the national exchequer and NAB officers do not receive any money from the recovered amount as NAB always believes in absolute transparency, professionalism and merit as per law.
