Notice issued to Transparency International for issuing false report: Kaira

Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Qamar Zaman Kaira on Wednesday said the government has issued notice to Transparency International (TI) for issuing a misleading report on corruption in Pakistan which would be pursued.
He said the report of TI was not based on facts and compiled through media reports and cases in courts.
The Minister said the coalition government of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has always welcomed positive and constructive criticism but it is unfair that TI has released a report which has many flaws and prepared without proper assessment and research.
He said the mechanism and methodology adopted by TI in compiling the report is faulty and does not present a true picture.
