Government to take custody of KP Ehtesab Commission

The provincial government has decided to take custody of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Ehtesab Commission’s assets.
According to sources, the assets will be handed over to the province’s Establishment and Administration Department.
Further, the Ehtesab Commission’s cases will be transferred to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and Directorate of Anti Corruption.
While some of the commission’s staff will be able to opt for a golden handshake, others will be added to the surplus pool. The provincial cabinet will subsequently decide on revising the status of 41 contractual employees.
Speaking to media, KP Secretary Establishment Arshad Majeed said, “Implementation on the provincial government’s decision to close down the commission is under way.”
“In this regard, a repeal act has been sent to the government for approval,” he added.
The commission was established in 2014 through the Ehtesab Commission Act.
