If successful prosecution and punishments were to be yardstick of assessing crime, massive tax evasion, corruption, money laundering and sexual offenses in Pakistan, than I am afraid we are a model law abiding country, even better than Norway.

All these reports of target killings, missing containers, billions of rupees being pilfered daily by unchecked corruption and money laundering seem to be either just media hype, or what we are witnessing is a massive cover up by all these white collar criminals ganging together to protect each other, because not a single high profile criminal has been punished. The huge pile of files being moved in Geneva pertaining to SGS Cotecna and Swiss Bank Accounts, under supervision of our High Commissioner to UK seem to be just a figment of imagination and so are charges of illegal grabbing of state and private real estate by powerful organized Land mafia dons.
