Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah will appear before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday (today) instead of Tuesday to record his statement before the accountability watchdog in connection with the fake accounts case.
The Sindh CM will appear at NAB old headquarters on Monday where Director General Irfan Mangi will record his statement.
The NAB will also give the chief minister a questionnaire.
The accountability bureau has further directed the chief minister to bring along all records pertaining to the Sakrand, Khoski, Pangrio and Thatta Sugar Mills.
NAB on March 21 summoned Murad to appear before it on March 26, in a case related to awarding subsidy of billions of rupees to Omni Group sugar mills in Sindh’s Thatta and Dadu.
Ahead of the appearance, Irfan Mangi contacted the district administration and sought additional security measures at the NAB office, sources said.
On March 20, former president Asif Ali Zardari and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had also appeared before the NAB in Islamabad and recorded their statements in the Park Lane Estate case.
An Islamabad accountability court has already summoned former president and co-chairperson of Pakistan People’s Party Asif Ali Zardari, his sister Faryal Talpur, Hussain Lawai, Anwar Majeed and others, to appear in court on April 8 in the fake accounts case.
A banking court in Karachi had last week accepted the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) plea to transfer the fake bank accounts case to the accountability court in Islamabad for trial.
