ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) representative in the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the Sharif family’s assets, Irfan Mangi, has replied to the second notice issued by the bureau.
Mangi, who was supposed to submit his reply by June 15, had submitted the reply on June 12, according to sources.
In the reply, Mangi has stated that the NAB should review the show-cause notice issue to him and withdraw it.
âI meet all the requirements for employment at National Accountability Bureau,â he points out in the reply, adding that his employment at NAB is not against the law.
He wrote that he has an experience of 14 years in investigation before he joined the NAB. He further said that he has also received three gold medals for his performance.
I am busy performing my duties for the JIT, he wrote in the reply.
On May 31, NAB had issued another notice to Mangi, signed by NAB Deputy Chairman Imitiaz Tajwar. He had asked the respondent to submit a reply in the next 15 days.
The notice stated that Mangi has been given the last opportunity to defend himself.
On June 17, Mangi had submitted a reply to the first show-cause notice issued by the NAB.
Earlier, Mangi, was issued a show-cause notice for âremoval from serviceâ on April 25 by the NAB and astonishingly simply two days later an official who was under notice facing removal from service was recommended for inclusion in the JIT on April 27.
The show-cause notices are related to a Supreme Court judgment of March this year where, among other directives, it was ordered that a committee be formed to look into the promotions and appointments of officers.Â
The reported illegal appointments of 95 officers will be dealt with by the committee. It will also look into the appointments of 102 officers, who were selected after being promoted. The committee will submit recommendations on these officers within three months, the court ordered.
