Corruption cases

I recall when Benazir Bhutto was the prime minister and was confronted with accusations of corruption and financial irregularities to favour her party members and husband she used to mockingly say “go to the court”.

I do not understand why courts should try to avoid taking up corruption cases.

Litigation becomes necessary when our politicians have a culture of resolutely denying everything instead of gracefully bowing out like the leaders in other countries do on disclosure of any minor scandal.

The disclosure of unexplained $60 million in Swiss banks and a few billion dollars worth of property in London is more than enough ground to bow out.
