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.


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 ?
