Is NAB being used for political revenge?

The Supreme Court recently set a deadline till February 2019 to amend the National Accountability Ordinance (NAO)’s sections allowing the plea bargaining practice to the anti-graft body.

The anti-graft watchdog has time and again been accused of being used for political engineering since its inception in the Musharraf-era.

Even after Musharraf’s era, however, an agreement could not be reached between the government and opposition over NAB’s plea bargain law during the PPP and PML-N governments.

Why was this the case?

SAMAA TV’s Amber Shamsi explores the issue and asks if NAB is truly being used as a tool to take political revenge or if the opposition parties are only shifting the blame on NAB to escape accountability.
