    A separate court needs to be set up urgently to expedite hearing corruption and financial fraud cases, so that these buffoons do not roam freely!

    I wonder whether calendars in our Courts have many months in between missing? And this is so when the cases against MR siblings and JOkers are called!!! They always get long, long dates!

    These cases should have been finished and the culprit/s must have been locked in prison long time back. President, the people voted against you because of these delays.
