LAHORE
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore has completed investigations into the Ramzan Sugar Mills Case on Saturday.
Director General of NAB Lahore Saleem Shahzad chaired meeting of the Regional Board of NAB Lahore where the decision of completing the investigations was made. The reference was sent to Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal for approval by the executive board.
The reference includes the statements of witnesses, along with the records of the approval of the contract and the statements of the former deputy commissioner.
National Assembly Opposition Leader and former Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif, Punjab Assembly Opposition Leader Hamza Shahbaz and his brother Salman Shahbaz (chief executive officers of the mill) are the main accused persons in the case.
After the arrest of Shahbaz in Ashiana-e-Iqbal housing scheme scam, he faced an inquiry for having assets beyond sources of income. During the investigation, Shahbaz stated that his son, Salman, oversaw his financial matters.
Shehbaz Sharif and his sons are accused of misusing authority for constructing a drain and a bridge, costing Rs200 million to facilitate the sugar mill. Shahbaz, the then chief minister, allegedly issued orders for the building of the drain on an emergency basis.
The former Punjab chief minister currently is on judicial remand in the Kot Lakhpat Jail, while his son, Salman Shehbaz has left the country.
