In its summary, NAB pleaded with the government to declare the anti-graft watchdog as the Civil Service Occupational Group, however, the Ministry of Law rejected the summary saying that NAB and its chairman are more autonomous than the civil service group.

In its letter, the law ministry wrote that by approving the summary, the anti-graft watchdog will no longer be an autonomous institution.
