ANAA Welcomes Pakistan Supreme Court's Decision

ANAA, Washington Metro Area tele conference was held on December 17, 2009 at 0730PM.
Participants: Athar Javaid, Dr. Anwar Masood, Dr. Talha Siddiqui, Zulekha Yusuf and Shah Abbas
Following resolution is passed on behalf of ANAA, Washington DC Chapter.

ANAA welcomes Pakistani Supreme Court unanimous decision to throw out an amnesty, know as National Reconciliation Ordinance which had been brokered by former president General Musharaf and foreign powers that protected as many as 8,000 political figures from prosecution on widespread corruption charges. The amnesty introduced in October 2007 allowed former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto to return from exile and released thousands of politicians and bureaucrats from charges of graft and other offenses.
ANAA views this development as a major step towards eradication of corruption and beginning of an era leading to restoration of strength integrity to institution of Governance.
