Tariq Mengal among Pakistan’s integrity ICONS 2020 winners 

ISLAMABAD:  The Integrity Icon Pakistan 2020 award ceremony on Tuesday celebrated the five winning Icons at an event at a local hotel. Deputy Commissioner Killa Abdullah, Tariq Javed Mengal was also one of the winning officers.

Amna Baig, ASP at Frontier Constabulary Lines in Islamabad; Daryan Khatoon, Principal of the Government Girls Lower Secondary School in Sukkur, Sindh; Mukhtar Paras, Director General of the Secretariat Training Institute in Islamabad and Azhar Ali, Chief Conservator of Forests in the Forest Department in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, was awarded in recognition of their work excellence, integrity and honesty in respective categories.

Integrity Icon is an annual event to benchmark the values of accountable leadership, transparency
and integrity in Pakistan’s civil service. The campaign recognizes and celebrates government
officials from across the country for their integrity and honesty.

Integrity Icon is currently in its fifth consecutive year in Pakistan and received more than 100 nominations which were screened and vetted by a jury comprising credible professionals from the civil services, academia and civil society of Pakistan.

The Icons’ dedication to serving citizens and carrying out their duties honestly earned
them the respect of their colleagues, superiors and most importantly, of Pakistani citizens.
Tens of thousands of Pakistanis voted online and by SMS as part of the campaign after millions
watched the Icons through social media platforms.

Mr. Zulfiqar Younus, Director of the Civil Services Academy in Lahore applauded the efforts of
Accountability Lab Pakistan and congratulated this year’s Icons by saying: “Integrity Icon has
become a popular award among public servants across the country.” He further shared that the Civil
Services Academy, in collaboration with Accountability Lab Pakistan’s Accountable Leadership
Program has trained more than 270 young bureaucrats.

Speaking at the occasion, Ms. Lis Rosenholm Ambassador of Denmark to Pakistan said, “I am
honored to be part of this Integrity Icon Pakistan movement that is enabling the creation of role-models and celebrating honest public officials. Lack of integrity in any sector will only lead to corruption and inequality! Denmark has been number 1 in the Corruptions Perceptions Index as the least
corrupt country in the world. This is due to a strong culture of public administration – it is the hard
work of the public sector and oversight bodies that hold the Government to account when it is needed. Press Release
