Now, Musharraf's aides implicated in 15 billion-rupee scam

By Super Admin

Lahore, June 30 (ANI): The Chief Justice of Pakistan, Iftikhar Chaudhry, has been informed about the involvement of former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf's coteries in a 15 billion rupee scam.

Punjab Cooperatives Board for Liquidation (PCBL) Chairman Nazar Muhammad Chauhan wrote a letter to Chaudhry detailing "massive corruption" by former military officials posted to NAB and PCBL.

"I want to bring to your notice massive corruption - with the money involved amounting to 15 billion rupees- by Musharraf's coteries posted to NAB and PCBL. Being duty bound, I reported the matter to ... the Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment and NAB ... [but there was] no result because of the clout millionaires exert in the ruling elite," the Daily Times quoted the letter, as saying.

Chauhan alleged that Former PCBL chairman Brigadier (r) Farooq Maan was the lynchpin of this mega fraud.

"Interestingly, on references filed by me, the Anti-Corruption Establishment lodged an FIR, arrested menial staff and did not go for the big fish. Brigadier (r) Farooq Maan, who was the lynchpin of this mega fraud of Rs 15 billion, is still at large," he said.

Concluding the letter, Chauhan wrote: "It's a pity that you were manhandled on the pretext of accountability and the ones who actually did it are not being brought to book."(ANI)
