Fawad Chaudhry calls for FIA-NAB merger

Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Saturday called for the merger of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) into a single agency. Chaudhry also called for talks between the opposition and the government to ensure that such an agency could be formed. Currently, the two bodies are independent but their jurisdictions and operations overlap in some areas.

NAB, according to its website, is an independent body tasked with eliminating corruption while FIA, also according to its official website, is tasked with the investigation of certain offences committed in connection with matters concerning the Federal Government.
