    Did the government recoverd the embezzled money from these government food department employees who stole from the food department or just this judge fined and punished them.
    This is becoming a respectable tradition in Pakistan who loots government and public money, spend few years in jail and enjoy their life even in jail from the money who get from the corruption. Because every government employee is corrupt except college and school teachers.
    The judges never get back money from the corrupt people.
