  • It’s all.lies. NAB like all pakistanis officals talk big and make all efforts to show & do propaganda for common people thst NAB is doing a great job. In reality it’s a big fraud nothing happened asnd nothing changed infact all crimin asls got away by giving a lollipop to common people.

    Actually NAB is the biggest reason tgere is fraud in Pakistan as if ur bad luxk and u get caught u pay fraction and get away without going to Jail.

    Amount of money lost by pakistan common people demand to hang NAB and it’s officals and all the frauds with there families leave the money with them.

    What a drama showing they recovered 200 billions after losing 30000 billions or more. What a idiots departmemt.

    You will see Chairman NAB will give a Beaurcratic speech that we will do this or that but reality nothing will happen as this is all talk but no work.
