IT is a bit surprising that, for the last one year, the government has been trying to get illegal money stashed abroad by political leaders and ends up getting Malik Riaz’s money instead (Dec 8).

His wealth shows itself in Pakistan by the projects of housing societies, hospitals, mosques, etc. If whole of Pakistan pays tax, he should be in that net too.

The political leaders have robbed the country and there is no sign of the money coming back. Where has it all gone? All of them are hobnobbing abroad in league with the authorities but there is no sign of the looted money.

Justice and accountability should be for all and completely transparent.
