ISLAMABAD: Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) Chairperson Zafar Hijazi appeared on Friday before the Panama case Joint Investigation Team to submit its reports on Chaudhry Sugar Mills owned by the Sharif family.
According to sources, five officers of the SECP presented the report against the sugar mills records before JIT. Officials of the commission appeared before the investigation team after they were summoned by the Supreme Court.
Besides issuing the summons, the apex court also sent a notice, after which the Federal Investigation Agency constituted an enquiry and fact-finding committee.
The records pertaining to Chaudhry Sugar Mills were a disputed matter as the JIT had alleged the commission tampered the records by stating the commission actually dropped the probe in 2013, but signatures showed it was closed in 2016.
The probe against Chaudhry Sugar Mills initiated in 2011, following pressure from the then government of Pakistan Peoples Party.
