Khawaja Saad, brother indicted in Paragon Housing scam

LAHORE: On Wednesday, the Responsible Court in Lahore indicted Pakistani Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) leader Kawaza Sadra Peak and his brother Kawaza Salmanra Peak in an ongoing Paragon Housing Association case.

During the hearing on August 20, the charges against Kawaza brothers were delayed because they did not provide a readable copy of the suspects of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Subsequently, Judge Syed Jawadul Hassan extended his jurisdiction until September 4.

The judge was told that the suspect was in court and the prosecution was ready for prosecution. But attorney Amjad Pervez informed the court that he could not read a copy of the reference and related documents provided to the suspect.

Pervez pointed out that the court cannot prosecute the suspect unless a readable copy of the case document is provided to the suspect by the NAB. The judge instructed the prosecution to provide clearer documents to the suspect without delay.

The judge regretted that the prosecution of the suspect was delayed in one or the other, and dismissed as being prosecuted in the hearing of the hearing on 4 September.

Meanwhile, police were dispatched around the courts to prevent unpleasant situations.

The Kawaza brothers were charged with embezzling nearly 2 billion rupees.

On April 26, NAB Lahore approved the submission of references to the Khawaja brothers and Nadeem Zia on corruption charges in the same case.

This decision was made by a regional board of directors attended by NAB Lahore's directors and other directors.

According to the handout, Qaiser Amin Butt, director of the Paragon Housing Association, was also included in a survey initiated by NAB and arrested last November. Later, he agreed to give approval to Brother Kawaza and Jia.

Butt and Zia founded a company called “Air Avenue” in 2003. However, the name was later changed to Paragon City private (Pvt) Limited.

On February 2, the court dismissed the request of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for another extension to the physical degeneration of Brother Kawazawa in this case and sent it to private withdrawal.

On 11 December 2018, the Lahore High Court (LHC) was detained by the responsible director after dismissing the application for bail.

NAB began investigating fraud charges last November after a press conference on what was called housing social fraud at the Lahore Press Club in November last year after many victims protested.
