(R) justice Javed Iqbal takes charge as new NAB chief
Retired justice Javed Iqbal on Wednesday assumed command as the new chief of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). Iqbal, who is replacing Qamar Zaman Chaudhry as the bureau’s chief, met with senior officials including NAB’s director general operations and members of the prosecution wing during his first day in office. Giving the officials their first task, the new NAB chief asked for the details of all outstanding cases, references and records. In a brief conversation with the media, Iqbal said that he would complete his previous assignment as the head of the missing persons commission by submitting the report his team has compiled, before giving up his post as the commission’s head, Dawn News said. ”I have worked hard on the report and it will be submitted soon,” he said.
