FBR’s I&I-IR barred from using investigation authority

LAHORE: High Court has barred Federal Board of Revenue’s (FBR) Intelligence & Investigation-Inland Revenue from using authority of investigation until further orders.

The LHC has sought reply from the federal government, FBR chairman and Intelligence & Investigation-IR director general and issued notices to them.

The petitioners’ lawyer, Waseem Ahmed Malik advocate, told the court that it is compulsory for the Directorate of Intelligence & Investigation-IR to recruit qualified and experienced investigation officers under the Income Tax Ordinance Section # 230. He alleged that the directorate recruited ineligible officers.
