Dou­ble Shah Scam vic­tims re­ceive cheques

The Pak Banker - - 2national -

LA­HORE: The Na­tional Ac­count­abil­ity Bureau (NAB) dis­trib­uted cheques of Rs 30.5 mil­lion among 4,800 af­fectees of Dou­ble Shah Scam at a cer­e­mony held here Thurs­day to mark the In­ter­na­tional Anti-cor­rup­tion Day. DG NAB Pun­jab Jus­tice (r) Rana Zahid Mehmood dis­trib­uted the cheques among the vic­tims.

Ad­dress­ing on the oc­ca­sion, he said that it was un­for­tu­nate that many grad­u­ates and bu­reau­crats of grade-22 had also de­posited their amount to Dou­ble Shah for dou­bling.

He claimed that "White Col­lar Crime" is in­creas­ing in the so­ci­ety due to poverty, greed and neg­li­gence from the teach­ings of Is­lam.

He urged the phi­lan­thropists to spend their ex­tra money on so­cial wel­fare pro­grammes and launch new projects for the pros­per­ity of the poor in­stead of waist­ing by de­post­ing it in fake schemes.

He said that the process of ac­count­abil­ity should be con­tin­ued in the coun­try and dis­hon­est of­fi­cers should be sus­pended the amounts of taxes could be spent on so­cial wel­fare projects. -App
