How many years ago NAB was form, I have yet to see any corrupation case they have resolved. This is another goverment body for rich people to get jobs. The list in the article , PIA,PSM, PR, TCP and ERRA, all goverment run companies and we have goverment made body(NAB) to investigate them. Just a joke, if the carry out proper investigation, there would be no corrupation future.

Why power and gas sectors are missing from the big names of corruption focus? when you have no electricity you have darkness and thats when thieves come out and rob. So start with the energy sector first and create jobs by going after others too.
