The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has sought from its officers the details of pending inquiries against them, if any, initiated by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
The officers have been asked through a letter issued by the authority’s administration wing to inform the management if they were currently facing any inquiry initiated by the agency, in addition to inquiries’ progress and number of officials either removed or still performing duties.
According to a CDA HR Directorate official, FIA is investigating nearly 21 cases against authority officials, of which the majority is related to land and estate departments.
The details have been sought following directions of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) which recently asked the city managers to provide details about inquiries.
Over 90 departmental inquiries are also in progress, the official said, adding there were also inquiries pending with the CDA which were initiated in the light of recommendations of a judicial commission constituted by IHC in 2013 to probe scams related to the authority.
Meanwhile, National Accountability Bureau is also investigating five cases related to the authority’s officials.
