Law Ki Dunya News Desk: Islamabad: The Federal Ministry of Law and Justice has prepared a draft bill for amendment to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) law.
According to the draft, the anti-graft watchdog would now be able to probe into corruption and scandal amounting to over Rs500 million, while suspects availing plea bargain or voluntarily reimbursing embezzled funds would be ineligible to hold public office for 10 years.
The draft also proposes empowering accountability courts to issue verdicts on bail petitions. The courts would be able to grant pre- and post-arrest bail applications. The NAB law would not be applicable on a private person if he/she was not related to a public office holder.
