National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman Fasih Bokhari said on Monday that the Rental Power Projects (RPP) case will be suspended until an independent investigation into the death of NAB official Kamran Faisal is completed, Express News reported.

If the investigation is unsatisfactory, NAB will conduct the investigation itself, Bokhari said. He added that any officer who wishes to remove himself from the case may do so.

Express News correspondent Haider Naseem reported that the only officer who had requested to be taken off the RPP case was Faisal himself.

NAB presents five demands

The employees and officers of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) presented five demands to authorities earlier on Monday after their fellow officer Faisal was ‘mysteriously’ found dead, reported Express News.

The employees demanded that a Supreme Court judge should inquire into the death of Faisal, who was investigating the Rental Power Projects case involving Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf. Faisal’s post mortem report had declared the death a suicide but his family refused to accept the report, insisting it was murder.

The Kamran’s murder is massage to whole nation that the corrupt lobbies in our country are so strong and only one institution that is Supreme Court which is giving some stopple the culprits.

Mirza | 8 years ago | Reply Admiral FB had to suspend the NAB investigation after its officials went on strike. The other option would have been to fire them all for not obeying official orders. How could any investigation continue after the total strike?
