Chaudhry Brothers appear before NAB

LAHORE – Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) Chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and former Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi appeared before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) today (Monday) in a graft case for possessing assets beyond known sources of income.

Both arrived in NAB court at 11:45am and remained in the investigation block for an hour. A three-member NAB team questioned Chaudhry brothers regarding their assets and recorded their statements.

The PML-Q sources said that Chaudhry brothers completed consultation with their legal experts in this regard.

The petition against them for possessing illegal assets more than Rs2 billion was filed in January 2000, following which NAB initiated investigation against them on April 12, 2000.

Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi were framed in a graft case before the tenure of former military ruler Pervez Musharraf. The brothers have ensured that they would fully cooperate with NAB in its investigations.
