In a press conference the Director FIA Karachi produced a senior official of the Education department who confessed to have had 21 members of his family as ghost employees in his department, including his 64 year old mother in law and his demised father, whose pension was still being drawn by the family. Naturally, he would be soon tried but having minted millions he is safe. He will engage the best lawyers to defend him and get of scot free. I wonder if there is even one honest, moral or ethical lawyer who will refuse such an open and shut corruption case. If our legal brains keep defending corrupt culprits then how can we eliminate corruption from Pakistan?
