“In light of the documented proof submitted by the complainants, strict action will be taken against the wrongdoers,” said Javed, adding that relief would be provided to the affectees and looted national wealth recovered.

He reiterated that no leniency with those looting national wealth would be tolerated, adding that the elements involved in making people’s lives miserable by looting public at large would be dealt with an “iron fist”.

“The premier anti-corruption watchdog alone cannot eradicate corruption, people from all walks of life should come forward and play their vital role in eradicating this menace once and for all,” the DG NAB noted.
