Government to introduce new law to curb corruption

The minister says all the political parties should endorse the law

Federal Law Minister Farogh Naseem has announced that the government is planning to introduce a new law to curb corruption. 

“All the political parties should happily endorse  the new law,” the minister said while addressing a press conference on Friday. “The legislation against corruption should not be politicised.”

Naseem said that the government has drafted a law to protect the whistle blowers. “The Whistle Blowers Protection Act 2018 will be tabled in  provincial and national assemblies for approval soon.”

Whistleblowers will be protected, and anyone who gives information about financial corruption would be given the 20% of the money the government recovers from the corrupt individuals, he added.

The minister said that a commission will be formed for screening the complaints. “The complaints will be sent to the NAB, FIA, and SECP after the screening.”

    AOA. I think this forum is very helpful for overseas Pakistanis having problems with their properties possession. I am the one of those Pakistanis. I am struggling for the last many years to get possession of my plot but failed due to land mafia’s powerful interaction with corrupt officials. Could you please guide me how to make a request to prime minister to get real help for possession of my plot. Thanks.
