Truth and Accountability Commission approved
Tuesday, 27 May 2008

The cabinet Sunday approved an ordinance designed to form the Truth and Accountability Commission. Updated and corrected

According to the Voluntary Disclosure Ordinance 2008, the term of the three-member commission will be five months initially, the chief adviser's press secretary Syed Fahim Munaim told reporters after a cabinet meeting in the CA's office.

Munaim said everybody would be able to enjoy the facilities of the commission, but the persons who had already been convicted of graft would not qualify.

A high-powered committee led by the chief adviser had earlier discussed the ordinance.

The commission will have the jurisdiction to confiscate property of the guilty.

The money deposited by anybody voluntarily to the state coffers before the proclamation of the ordinance would be taken into account in line with the ordinance.

The government had earlier formed a four-member committee to make a draft on the proposed commission. The committee had designed the structure and legal affairs of the commission.
