Pakistan Supreme Court Reopens Corruption Cases Against Politicians

1 min read

In Islamabad, Pakistan’s Supreme Court has issued an order to reopen corruption cases and investigations involving dozens of politicians.

This includes former Prime Minister Sharif, Asif Zardari, Raja Pervez, Yusuf Raza Gillani, and more than 40 other politicians who will now face inquiries.

These cases were previously closed after changes were made to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) laws by the PDM government. These changes were challenged in the Supreme Court by former Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is currently in jail after being removed from office in April of the previous year.

In a significant ruling, Pakistan’s Supreme Court has reversed the amendments to the country’s anti-corruption laws, which were introduced by the PDM government and contested by former PM Imran Khan.

These amendments had allowed many PDM leaders and politicians to avoid facing their corruption charges. The Supreme Court’s decision reinstates all the corruption investigations and inquiries that were closed following these changes.
