Ramzan Sugar Mills reference filed against Shehbaz, Hamza
On Feb 18, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday filed Ramzan Sugar Mills reference against Opposition Leader in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shehbaz. It is worth mention here that the Ramzan Sugar Mills reference was filed for causing loss of rupees 213 million to the national exchequer. In the reference, it alleged that as former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz had misused his authority by constructing a 25 kilometers of drain to facilitate Ramzan Sugar mills under pretext of people well-being. An inquiry that was carried out in the month of July last year, proved that Shehbaz abused his powers to benefit his family members, NAB said and added, “We have subsequent evidence against the duo of father and son.” On February 2, following the completion of investigation into Ramzan Sugar Mills scam, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore, had decided to nominate Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz as main accused in the scandal. The decision was taken in a meeting chaired by Director General (DG) NAB Lahore, Shehzad Saleem, and sought an approval from the Bureau’s headquarters for filing reference against them. Earlier, another fraud of Ramzan Sugar Mills came into surface in Chiniot. An attempt was made to get the support of people on the construction of a bridge linking to Ramzan Sugar Mills in Chiniot. The mills administration started to take the signature of local people on the permission of illegal construction of drainage on behalf of fake survey conducting. The local people nabbed 11-members team among two women and handed over to the police.
