Is NAB being used for political revenge?

January 8 , 2019

The anti-graft watchdog has time and again been accused of being used for political engineering





The Supreme Court recently set a deadline till February 2019 to amend the National Accountability Ordinance (NAO)’s sections allowing the plea bargaining practice to the anti-graft body.

The anti-graft watchdog has time and again been accused of being used for political engineering since its inception in the Musharraf-era.

Even after Musharraf’s era, however, an agreement could not be reached between the government and opposition over NAB’s plea bargain law during the PPP and PML-N governments.

Why was this the case?

SAMAA TV’s Amber Shamsi explores the issue and asks if NAB is truly being used as a tool to take political revenge or if the opposition parties are only shifting the blame on NAB to escape accountability.

    It’s true that NAB is being used as a tool to revenge the politicians especially the PMLN. All the cases against NS were prepared during Mushraf era. Now most of the present government members are the same.But this is very dangerous. The circumstances are obeviously moving towards the end of present system..as desired by ………?

    I think this is 50/50. Also in last few months we have observed that NAB is not enough competent to deal with today’s challenges.
