NAB as usual lost its credibility, dismayed people spirits, made the nation downhearted trusted in NAB.
Today NAB proved that its prosecutors are incompetent, inefficient, incapable and ineffective who does not have ability to fight ‘’Corruption and Money laundering’’ cases in Pakistan in which the country has been confined since decade.
The current NAB Chairman Justice [R] Javed Iqbal who made astronomical promises that he would not spare anyone from the clutch of NAB whoever gave financial loss to the country?
The criminal would be liable before NAB for every single fills that they stole. People took a sigh of relief that this time NAB would play a positive & meaningful role in getting back the plundered and looted amount from corrupt mafia.
But such hope and confidence built upon NAB could not last rather collapsed when Islamabad High Court (IHC) suspended the sentences awarded to the former premier Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law retired captain Mohammad Safdar in Avenfield reference case - announcing their released on bail from Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail. The three had been convicted on July 6th 2018 found them guilty of corruption and sentenced them to imprisonment and fines.
Islamabad High court in its verdict says
“The instant writ petition is allowed and sentence awarded to the petitioners by the accountability court shall remain suspended till the final adjudication of the appeal filed by the petitioner,”
‘’The petitioner shall be released on bail subject to furnishing bail bonds the sum of Rs.500k individually as a surety to the satisfaction of deputy registrar of the high court’’ reads the judgment.
It is unfortunate that NAB prosecutors are not professionally sound, competent, well qualified, talented, capable, effective, efficient and well equipped with the basic norm of a good lawyer.
“The most powerful way to win an argument is by asking questions, it can make people see the flaw in the logic of the opponent.”
As we know that engraved quality of good legal councilors based on analytical skills, creativity, research skill, Interpersonal skills, logical thinking ability, perseverance, public speaking skills, writing skills & judgement that’s NAB prosecutors does not have?
If NAB inability persists & unable to appoint army of its ‘’competent professional lawyers’’ to proceed corruption cases in its spirit then better to shut down its shutter as the country is not able to endure government machinery’s rising expenses that does not produce any conclusion but just killing the times of countrymen and allied agencies that facilitates NAB proceeding in its Court
A capable and effective Lawyer who can present and fight the case with well-defined technicality involves the practical application of abstract legal theories and knowledge to solve the specific individualized corruption issues. It is all about how innovative your delivery of legal service is.
The NAB is empowered to undertake any necessary prevention and awareness, in all means, in addition to enforce its operations against the economic terrorism and financial terrorism.
NAB was established on 16 November 1999 and its sphere of operation has been expanded - The constitution grants to launch investigations conduct inquiries, and issues arrests warrants against the individuals suspected in the financial mismanagement terrorism, corruptions in private sector, state sector, defense sector and corporate sector and directs cases to accountability courts across the country.
Thus in terms of inefficiency of NAB we don’t see any difference among the NAB Chairman we have currently and the Chairman we had earlier i.e. like Ex. Chairman Admiral [R] Fashi Bukhari and Ex. Chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudry both had slanderous attitudes and had politicized NAB - where their role remained a big question mark & even Supreme Court of Pakistan labeled them as a recovery officer instead to book the money launderer to proceed for financial terrorism in the country and they did a plea bargain, however at one of the occasion Supreme court judge said
Justice Shaikh Azmat Saeed, part of the two-member bench hearing the case, said "NAB is facilitating corruption in the country" by allowing wrongdoers to opt for NAB's voluntary return scheme.
