    He will give a clean bill of health to Musa Gillani, Abdul Qadir, and the rest.

    Mubarak Ho, neither Zafar Abbas Lak was suspended nor dismissed from the job.

    What PM will do if Supreme Court of Pakistan will ask FIA to investigate the case of PM’s son and MNA Ali Musa Gilani.

    Probably Zafar Abbas Lak will be transferred again to some other department from FIA.

    Zafar Abbas Lak is just doing his job n not protecting anyone…he is an honest officer…. He was DIG in 2005 and his close relatives like Ch Shujaat n Pervaiz Elahi were in govt but he wasn’t promoted as AIG and he also didn’t tried to get promotion even having all powers, reference, authorities in his hand…..his juniors became AIG as well as IG but he got promotion after 7 years….its his honesty…..Try to use your mind before speaking anything for anyone…..everybody is not corrupt who is involved in Ppp govt……No one refuses his promotion especially after 7 years….. Don’t b Lakeer k Fakeer…..
