According to sources, ACE has reopened cases of bureaucrats, against whom complaints were received but not proceeded with. They further said that apart from the slow pace of work of ACE, one of the main reasons for not getting hold of the influential and corrupt bureaucrats was the political backing they had. ACE spokesperson Sadia Ijaz, while talking to Pakistan Today, said that the prime minister’s zero-tolerance policy against corruption would be followed by ACE. If the bureaucrats are to be brought to justice then political influence needs to be put an end to. ACE will take all necessary steps for the culmination of corruption.”She also said that some cases of influential officers were already being investigated.
