ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has prepared its policy under NAB amendment Ordinance, for pending cases and references with the courts.
Prosecutor General NAB has written letters to deputy prosecutor generals of all bureaus and stated that NAB would continue its work in money laundering cases under Anti Money Laundering Act.
It was clarified that the jurisdiction of NAB was still maintained on cases pertaining to money laundering, corruption, assets beyond sources of income and misuse of powers.
