FATA health officers to be probed for corruption in anti-polio programme | Pakistan
PESHAWAR: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, has approved requests against staff of the FATA Secretariat, Malakand Finance Department and the Peshawar Sanctions Board for their alleged misappropriation of funds reserved for the polio program and other corrupt practices.
According to the notice published on Sunday, this decision was made during the meeting of the Regional Council of NAB K headed by the Director General of NAB KP Farmanullah Khan in Peshawar.
As the NAB approved the request, FATA health officials will be investigated for their alleged misappropriation of poliomyelitis eradication funds in tribal areas.
Carrying out a study on this issue is important to ensure the absence of a veil without poliomyelitis, since it has not been available since 1946.
In addition, FATA Secretariat staff will be questioned, reportedly, for the transfer of projects to Frontier Re (19459003)
. On the other hand, Peshawar Irshad Muhammad Khan, Senior Engineer of the Quartering Board, will investigate, according to available information, assets that are outside of known sources of income, while employees of the financial department of Malakand will be checked for their alleged corrupt practices.
