Based upon the recommendations of the "Special Committee" a new set of SOPs will be prepared at NAB HQs which will be circulated to all Regions in order to ensure harmony and uniformity in NAB's work. Prosecutor General NAB was asked to direct all Regional Prosecutors to strictly adhere to the SOPs.
Chairman directed that the Regions must fix time limit and targets for Prosecutors and Legal Consultants (LCs) and their performance will be evaluated on the success achieved in their work.
Chairman directed that proper monitoring and postmortem of the cases should be carried out. The concept of Combined Investigation Team (CIT) be implemented in letter and spirit and cooperation between the Investigating Officers (IOs) and Prosecutor should be ensured.
DPGA in the Region should discuss the cases with the Prosecutor and LCs on daily basis and formulate strategy to achieve maximum success. A more objective performance evaluation of all the LCs and Prosecutors should be done. A new Performa has been prepared for this purpose. The Prosecution should also resist unnecessary adjournments in the courts.
