Reacting to Ahsan’s appeal, former information minister Fawad Chaudhry said that PML-N leaders need to diminish foreign properties, camp offices, foreign trips, and then Pakistanis will think about cutting tea consumption. ، بیرون ملک جائیدادیں کم کر دیں ، کیمپ آفس کم کر دیں ، غیر ملکی دوروں پر لوگ کم کر دیں ، ہم ایک پیالی چائے کم کر دیتے ہیں https://t.co/PCcLbY3kdQ — Ch Fawad Hussain (@fawadchaudhry) June 14, 2022Earlier, some media reports claimed that Pakistanis consumed tea worth Rs83.88 billion in the fiscal year 2021-22 – nearly Rs13 billion worth of more tea than the last fiscal year.

Since the creation of Pakistan, the Government of Pakistan (GoP) has been borrowing, which started with the first financial aid request from the US. In contrast, the elite of Pakistan has been borrowing from the government of Pakistan without any sense of guilt or remorse. And, we have seldom heard if ordinary citizens have their house loans waived off or written off. Further, new and novel ways have been devised to steal from the GoP and its people. Thus, GoP and its ordinary citizens have been exploited with impunity and no one has ever been held accountable for this.

On Monday, Hamid revealed that Imran Khan himself admitted that reference against Justice Isa was a 'mistake'. Senior lawyers believe that Hamid Khan's re-joining is significant as consultation with him would prevent Imran Khan from further embarrassments on legal fronts. During the PTI's government, Hamid Khan was also very critical of the undue influence of security establishment in the workings of the executive. Interestingly, the Independent Lawyers Group, (also known as Asma Jahangir Group), is closed to the coalition government led by the PML-N. Observers believe that this is a sign of Imran Khan's rising popularity in the legal fraternity since his removal as PM.

The decision by a district sessions judge to allow for under-trial prisoners (UTPs) to be produced before the court through video link is a commendable step forward. As a result of this decision, UTPs will now be allowed to appear for their hearings via video link through Adiala Jail, instead of having to first be held in the poorly maintained and crowded Bakshi Khana in F-8 and then be brought to court, leading to logistical issues, not to mention the fuel cost incurred as a result. Under the new model, UTPs that have their cases fixed for evidence will still be produced before the court. A video link appearance is likely to take up less time of the court, provided all the technical details have been figured out in advance. Saving on costs, making the lives of UTPs and courts easier and allowing for a potentially efficient process is a worthwhile endeavour and one worth replicating.

In a meeting hosted by the PM of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), Sardar Tanveer Ilyas, it was decided by the regional government that it would not present its own budget for the new fiscal year in light of the ‘enormous’ cuts in the budgetary grants by the federal government. Given the economic constraints within which this budget was released, it is vital that the federal government looks to overcome any grievances and explains that cuts were experienced by most sectors, provinces and ministries, not just AJK alone. The budget for AJK was slashed by Rs.5.2 billion in total, prompting immense opposition from the region. The health ministry, arguably one of the most relevant and important ministries given the current global health crisis, also experienced a budget cut from Rs.154 billion to Rs.19 billion. We are living through a national economic crisis and animosity between the government and regional authorities will only create more trouble.

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is scheduled to meet this week, from June 14 to 17, 2022, in Berlin where it will be decided whether Pakistan has fulfilled all of the requirements needed to exit the list. According to sources, Pakistani officials appear to be quite hopeful of a positive outcome from the plenary meeting as they believe that there has been substantial progress that has been acknowledged by FATF members. There is no denying that Pakistan has put in sincere efforts over the years to bring about the recommended structural changes. Now that the authorities have played their part, it remains to be seen if the FATF community is satisfied with the progress. Before Pakistan can be excluded from the list however, FATF is expected to send its team over for onsite inspection to take stock of the progress that has been made.

Parliament should be part of debate on talks with TTP: RabbaniISLAMABAD – Former chairman Senate and Pakistan People’s Party legislator Mian Raza Rabbani Monday proposed that talks with the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) needed to be made part of a national debate. He said that parliament, experts, military commanders who fought against the TTP and civil society should be a part of the debate. His remarks came after the ruling PPP said that parliament should decide all key matters related to talks with the TTP and about mainstreaming the outlawed group. The two tribal jirgas sent to negotiate with the group cannot be a replacement of the collective wisdom of parliament, Rabbani said. The people of Pakistan have the right to decide their future, therefore, let a consensus decision be arrived at through a debate in which parliament leads, he concluded.

Each of these is of the highest importance to the country, even if many Americans are unlikely to be swayed by them. Every president in our nation’s history has honored the constitutional duty to relinquish power and allow the peaceful transfer of executive authority – every president that is, until Donald Trump. The existential danger that burst into deadly mob violence on January 6 has not been laid to rest, it is ongoing. The country as a whole must reckon with and acknowledge what a sitting president perpetrated and the existential harm he brought on this country with his reckless, abhorrent, and illegal actions. Thus, there should be no doubt in anybody’s mind that he has committed treason against the United States, for which he must be charged and face his day in court.
