Islamabad: The government has decided to reinvestigate the issue of illegal payment of over Rs3.65 billion to UNICEF by Officials of Ministry of Health Regulation by violating the rules and regulations, revealed a sensitive report forwarded to Parliamentary committee.

It said top officials of the Ministry of Health Regulations made payment to UNICEF while it was neither a vaccination producing institution nor distributor. The government has decided to conduct high level investigation into the matter and award punishment in accordance with law.

The report said that payment was done through cheque No 5796135 in 2016 to UNICEF. The basic purpose of the massive payment was purchasing of vaccination for different diseases. The document raised questions that when the UNICEF was not vaccination producing institution then why this heavy payment was made.

The Lahore High Court (LHC) in its directives has categorically ordered the officials to follow Peppra rules during purchase while written assurance was made to the court in the officials document that no step would be repeated in future, which would be repugnant to national laws. Parliamentary Committee would reinvestigate the matter after Muharram-ul-Haram.

Although “reporter” frequently contacted to spokesman and Secretary Health but both declines to give their stance on this issue.}
