The government has once again shown its true colors while placing obstacle after obstacle in front of the Zafar Qureshi and his team, to protect their corrupt colleagues involved in the NICL scam. In no other country would people, like our Minister for Commerce, still be in power while being investigated for pocketing huge sums of illegal wealth through the NICL scam. The same minister incidentally is the the person who brought Ayaz Niazi to Pakistan and made him the head of NICL. Niazi was the front-man in numerous corrupt activities, the most prominent of which was the NICL scam.
The said minister also brought Tariq Puri, a person with a shady reputation to head the TDAP, and also assume charge of NICL just four days later in a pre-conceived deal, to cover when Niazi was arrested. Zafar Qureshi made it quite clear to the honourable Supreme Court that Puri had been doctoring documents and delaying the investigation into the scandal, and Puri was in turn reprimanded by the court for his actions. The Supreme Court must not let these corrupt people get away with their deeds, and should drag all of them to court. I hope the media continues to follow this case and ensure honourable people, like Zafar Qureshi and the Supreme Court justices, have the nation’s full support.
