ISLAMABAD/ LAHORE: After acquiring certified copies of the Supreme Court’s detailed verdict on the Asghar Khan case, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has started its work to implement the order.

The agency will initially issue notices to those who had allegedly received money from the military during the 1990 elections. The politicians will be given a month to pay back.

The FIA will further issue a second notice to those who fail to return the money and will be given a week’s time.  The agency will extend the deadline on request but the politicians will then have to submit a written statement, promising to pay the money back in a month or two.

According to an FIA official, Interior Minister Rehman Malik advised investigators to discuss the recovery process with law ministry officials.

In case of no recovery, the FIA team will take further steps as mentioned in an action plan formulated with the help of legal advisers.

The money should be returned with interest since 1990, and what about the Generals who corrupted the system and offered bribes to certain politicians. It is always a slap on the wrist of those who violated the laws of the land if one has the political or economic power.
