  • Pakistan needs to digitize criminal record. People keep committing crimes, do the time and then feel free to repeat the cycle. Their crimes should have consequences which affect their future behaviour. If criminal record is digitized, people will fear that it will affect their ability to get employment and also affect their social life, and perhaps will think twice about reengaging in crime.
