He investigative agent said several contracts were awarded and payments made without execution by the companies under Presidential Amnesty Programme, adding that the case was assigned to Special Investigation Team sitting in the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) after an intelligence report was received on the ‘fraud’ which was one of the fraudulent activities at the Office of the Presidential Amnesty Programme in 2018.
