In a letter to the chairman FBR, he pointed out that this menace is causing massive losses to the national exchequer and also resulting in bad name for the country. He noted that none of these nefarious activities can be carried out without facilitators.

Tariq expressed his believe that some of these facilitator types have F.I. R’s already registered against them they should be fully investigated /dormant files should be revived. Customs intelligence, FIA, all border authorities, ministry of interior etc should all form special J.I. T’s to finish off this menace/ cancer under the direct monitoring of prime minister.

These J.I. T’s should report to prime minister on a biweekly basis. He said that these types of facilitators are enemies of the country.
