ISLAMABAD - National Accountability Bureau has grilled Fawad Hasan Fawad Fawad, former Secretary to disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in District Jail Lahore. The former secretary to PM was grilled by the NAB investigators in a case of importing 34 bulletproof vehicles.
Interestingly, after disqualification, former PM Sharif did not return two BMW bulletproof cars till the completion of PML-N government’s tenure, sources claimed.
They said that investigation team had requested the Accountability Court Lahore to allow it to interrogate the close aide of former PM Sharif in import of bulletproof vehicles case. The court accepted the NAB request and allowed it to visit the camp Jail.
Fawad Hasan Fawad has been arrested a few months back in Aashyana Housing scam and is still facing the Bureau’s investigation in that case.
Sources claimed that the NAB has sped up investigation against Fawad and other officials of Foreign office in this case. They said that Fawad had sent a summary to Secretary Foreign Affairs to import 34 bulletproof BMW cars from Germany before SAARC summit 2016. They mentioned that these cars were imported to Pakistan and not a single penny was paid as customs duty on these vehicles. They said that the then Secretary Foreign Affairs Aizaz Chaudhary obeyed the orders of PM office and allegedly approved the summary.
Sources said that 20 out of 34 BMWs were allegedly made part of protocol of Sharif family and even they did not give for picking and drop of diplomats during SAARC conference.
