WikiMir Fraudia List: A compilation of all the big names of corruption in Pakistani politics and beyond

I was googling around when I happened to stumble upon this interesting list, dubbed the ‘fraudia’ list, which is an initiative to compile the names of the all the corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, Generals and journalists. The list contains names from people like our President to corrupt bureaucrats like Ahmed Riaz Sheikh along with all their known corruption. A message on the page says:

We are compiling this list as a community project. If you have any information regarding a Pakistani politician, bureaucrat, military person, journalist just write it here. If you do not want to edit this web page, you car write on the Discussion Page for Fraudia List. It would be then added onto the Fraudia List. Any, all help is highly appreciated.

This a highly appreciable project– if you think you know any politician/bureaucrat/general or journalist involved in corruption, feel free to add their name to the ever growing fraudia list.

Imran Khan humiliates Zardari and his crony–Hillarious

Imran Khan takes Faisal Abidi of PPP heads on, asking him where Zardari ‘earned’ his $60 million dollars from. Instead of replying to the question put forward by Khan, Faisal Raza Abidi avoids the question and at the end of the video, presents a ‘shaer’ (poetry) on the $60 Million and Zardari– Hillarious Stuff.

FIA: Protecting the corrupt of Pakistan

According to a report in The News daily, “The Federal Investigative Authority secretly helped the main accused in Pakistan Steel Mills case, now being heard by the Supreme Court, to run away from Pakistan although she was on an FIA watchlist and had to seek prior permission from the SC to leave the country.”

The FIA’s watch list was abolished a day before Sabin Sakina, accused director of Abbas Steel Mills and daughter of Riaz Laljee, a close friend of one of the top personalities in Islamabad, flew to the UK under official protocol provided at the Islamabad International Airport.

The staffers of an important minister escorted Sabin to the Rawal Lounge, reserved for VIPs, in connivance with FIA officials on duty.The watch list carrying her name was abolished on December 3 and she fled by the night of December 4. The action was so secretive that the then DG FIA remained in the dark about this clandestine operation for several days, an official privy to details said.

How do we expect our country to progress when our law enforcement agencies are promoting and protecting corruption in Pakistan ? Will the Supreme Court kindly take suo moto notice of this serious development ?

Government To Revive Zardari’s Swiss cases, PM pledges enforcement of SC verdict

Following the apex court’s judgment, the Government of Pakistan would be writing to the foreign courts including Swiss to revive the corruption cases against the president of Pakistan. In the Swiss courts most of the cases, closed following NRO promulgation as a consequence of the request of the Government of Pakistan, were pertaining to the alleged corruption of President Asif Ali Zardari. It would be a unique precedent where a government would be writing to another government for the initiation of corruption cases against its own president. President Asif Ali Zardari’s constitutional immunity from criminal prosecution available in the Constitution of Pakistan will not apply in Switzerland where he will be governed by the Swiss law, and the international law for being a foreign head of state after the revival of the closed cases of massive corruption

PM pledges enforcement in letter and spirit

The prime minister had consultations with some eminent constitutional experts about the interpretation of the judgment. Some ‘jurists’ have advised the prime minister to wait till the time the apex court gives a full verdict in the cases, but Prime Minister Gilani has made up his mind to take action in accordance with the spirit of the judgment within 24 hours of its pronouncement.

Lets see what happens, the SC verdict has indeed changed the whole game.

Supreme Court Declares NRO Null and Void


Supreme Court has just announced what could be called one of the most important verdicts in the judicial and political history of Pakistan. The black law, NRO, has been struck down and done with, once and for all. All the cases including cases against Zardari will now reopen.

Click here to read a short summary the NRO judgement.

According to the judgment, the NRO is contrary to the equality guaranteed by the 1973 Constitution of Pakistan. Similarly, all the cases, disposed off because of the controversial ordinance, now stand revived as of Oct 5, 2007 position, said the judgment.

In addition, the court has ordered the government that it should immediately reopen the Swiss cases concerning President Asif Ali Zardari.

“The provisions of the NRO seem to be against national interests thus it violates the several provisions of the constitution,” the ruling said.

I offer my heartiest congratulations to Pakistanis’ around the world as we have taken the first step to deal with the ever increasing corruption. This verdict will result in the re-opening of about 8000 cases… I wonder how the judiciary plans to handle these cases, in such a huge quantity.

The verdict was suppose to be out by 4:30, but it was delayed by more than 5 hours during which rumors emerged that a military coup might be in store. Fortunately though, the day went through without any mishaps although there were reports of firing in Karachi.

Pakistani High Commissioner in Britain Wajid Shamsul Hasan headed a secret operation in Geneva and received at least 12 cartons comprising the original documents and evidences against some Pakistani high-ups in Swiss money laundering case, Geo News reported Tuesday.

The sources said the secret operation was carried out at the bidding of a top personality of Pakistan, as these evidences could be used if Swiss Money Laundering case is reopened after the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) terms comes to an end. The sources at Pakistan embassy said if the concerned officials or the courts do not interfere by taking the evidences back from Wajid, then these documents would be wasted for good.
