Filing of corruption references by the NAB and submission of the list of 150 mega corruption cases to the SCP rang a serious alarm bell for some highly placed political leaders, both in power as well as in opposition. Some are reported to have fled to safer heavens abroad and others are trying their best to escape the noose that might be tightening around their necks soon. Speaker NA has reservations about the unbiased working of NAB and has even hinted of a reference that could be brought against its Chairman.

It is common knowledge that such cases could only be brought to light by a non political government as the politically elected governments, particularly the coalition governments have lots of other considerations and compromises to take care of. The million and billions of dollars lying in foreign banks are a reality but who will bring them back? Are the cases lying with NAB genuine or fake, only the impartial courts can decide? Till then let’s wait and see.
