Sir, with due respect, the real test case for SC involving MR & BT was in KHI. That was as mega corruption, as one can imagine. SC let him go with a mere slap on the wrist - with joke of a decision. Thousand of Acres of land at prime location was handed to BT in a plate by Govt. in exchange for some barren trash land in the middle of no where!
Also, DHA in KHI, PES, LHR is no different!
Here are a few glimpses of that corruption:
"Around 9,385 acres of land in 43 Dehs was consolidated by the MDA and handed over to the Bahria Town Karachi in 2015. The purpose was to build a private housing society at a 25-minute drive from the Jinnah International Airport and nine kilometres from the Karachi toll plaza on the Superhighway."
"Mr Zafar, the defence counsel, argued that the MDA had transferred 7,068-acre land to the Bahria Town Karachi for the development of a housing scheme in exchange for land of an equal size. The value of the land provided by the MDA to the Bahria Town Karachi was Rs6.2 billion but the land that was given by the Bahria Town Karachi to the MDA in exchange was valued at Rs5.8 billion. Of this, he added, Rs240 million had been paid whereas Rs20 million was still in balance"
Afterwards, all whatever happens is a Tom & Jerry show to keep the folks enjoying the show and believing that something of a change will happen with the powerful brought under accountability. Unfortunately, that sort of change deosn't seem to be on the horizon, as yet!!
Unfortunately, I don't see the current NAB, SC to have any strength in standing up against these mega crooks. SC is still unable to have a single suo-motto on the Scam of Supreme Court Housing Societies where people have their money sunk and some of the business to setup that society was even conducted from within an office inside SC.
On a similar note, talking about rule of law:
In not so distant past, a so called religious scholar openly abused the SC and judges with some quite derogatory remarks. SC issued him contempt notices but the guy said, he is not gonna come to the court, go ahead and do whatever you want to. Case dismissed! How can MR or for that sake any mega corrupt can be brought to justice...
Politics-driven, manipulated and selective decisions are best that can be done by them, for now.
