The self-preservation tendencies of corruption are reaching new heights. They are finding legal ways to shelter their illegal ones. This Amendment Ordinance has seriously curtailed the independence and power ambit of NAB effectively turning it into a toothless tiger. The security charge of NAB judges is no longer in the hands of NAB, neither is the power of transferring cases from one court to the other. The fact that the powers of NAB have been reduced drastically without any need or rationale behind it should signal towards the ulterior motives of the current government. At the end of the day, all this will result in is the plummeting of the governments approval.
