    In what appears to be one of the biggest frauds in Pakistan's history, more than 11,000 containers of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) containing goods worth over a whopping 220 billion rupees have gone 'missing.'

    The containers, which were used to transport prohibited and non-prohibited goods for the NATO forces stationed in Afghanistan, have mysteriously disappeared over the past two years owing to the prevalent massive corruption in the Customs department.

    According to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) these containers were imported to provide equipments to the international forces in Afghanistan and contained weapons, liquor, military uniforms and other prohibited and non-prohibited materials, The Nation reports.

    "During last two years, around 11,727 containers were imported but the goods were unloaded in Pakistan despite the fact that these were meant for Afghanistan," the FBR said.

    Investigations have revealed that goods from these containers were loaded down in Karachi but their fake registration was made at Torkham, Afghanistan.

    Following the scam being revealed, authorities have filed a case against the service provider.

    However, there has been no official word over the issue so far. (ANI)

    What else do we expect from Pakistanis. This is what they always do and are best at it .But 220 Bln is too much.

    With regards to Pakistan everything goes down the drain. Not only because of corruption, but also because of the selective myopia their masters have.

    OTOH, if serious audits are done, more skeletons will roll out of the Pakistani administrations cupboard.
