Leaders of the Pakistan Muslim N League (PML-N) Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Salman Rafique were released after authorities at the Lahore prison camp received release orders on Thursday. Large numbers of PML-N workers gathered outside the camp prison to greet their leaders.
Previously, the Supreme Court on Tuesday promised the Havaj brothers in a scandal with the Paragon housing system. The Court of Appeal ordered the Khawaja brothers to provide Rs 3 million for each surety bond. During the hearing, Judge Maqbool Bakir noted that NAB had no opportunity or intent.
He realized what was illegal if the money was transferred to the Khawaja brothers’ accounts. He added that they allow the transfer of money. Judge Bakir noted that NAB must prove whether something was illegal. It is worth mentioning that previous PML-N leaders Ahsan Iqbal and Shahid Hakan Abbasi have already received promises on the NAB liaisons.
At the same time, Rana Sanaulla is also on bail in a case initiated by the NSF (Anti-Drug Forces). NAB filed a liaison with the Khawaja brothers in a scandal over the Paragon housing system. Brothers Khawaja, Nadim Zia, Umar Zia, and Farhan Ali were named accused. According to NAB, brothers Havaj and Nadim Ziya owned a 93.2% stake in the Paragon Housing Society. He claimed that the former Minister of Railways received cash benefits from the company in the amount of Rs 58 million, and his brother Rs 39 million.
