ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan has struck down the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO), The controversial ordinance granting politicians, bureaucrats and industrialists amnesty was brought in by ex-President Gen. Pervez Musharraf for his own political interests. The court decision opens the way to possible prosecution for President Zardari’s political cronies and other allies, though he remains protected by presidential immunity. A welcome step towards rule of law in Pakistan and hope that the law will even extend across the board to other power corridors of corrupt bearucratics, industrialists, businessmen, politicians, judges, journalists and generals…
An exit strategy must be predicated on achieving military and political goals, not dictated by time limits.
