The Balo­chis­tan government has decided to amend the Anti-corrup­tion and Inquiry Estab­lish­ment Bill to make the institution more effective throu­­gh legislation for initiating probe against officials and other people involved in corruption in the province.
The decision was taken at a meeting of the Anti-Cor­ruption Department, Balo­chistan, here on Thursday. Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani presided over the meeting which was also attended by Director Gen­eral of the Anti-Corruption Depart­ment Zeeshan Lehri and other senior officials.
Mr Lehri briefed the meeting on the performance of his department and progress on different corruption cases under investigation in the department.
A bill will be moved in the Balochistan Assembly after approval of the amended draft for legislation.
The chief minister told the meeting that a committee should be formed which would recommend registration of FIRs after reviewing evidence of corruption against any person.
“There is dire need of reforms in the anti-corruption institutions for making them more effective,” Mr Alyani said.
