PSMA submits detail response to DG FIA over sugar probe report
KARACHI/ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Pakistan Sugar Mills Association (PSMA) on Thursday submitted a detailed response to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) director general over the sugar probe report. In a 45-page letter to the FIA director general, the PSMA said allegations leveled against sugar mill owners were false and that the investigative agency had not included their view in the report following a probe into the recent sugar crisis. “Should justice not be provided, the body will approach the courts,” it warned. The PSMA also rejected the probe report as ‘propaganda’ and claimed it was ‘one-sided’, adding that it would not accept a forensic report either. Any and all measures taken with regard to sugar were legal, it stressed.
