Court has decided to indict Zafar Hijazi in record tampering case on Oct 4

ISLAMABAD: The special central judge announced on Tuesday to indict on Oct 4 former SECP chairman Zafar Hijazi in a case related to altering the record of the Sharif family’s Chaudhry Sugar Mills.

Judge Irum Niazi handed over a copy of charge-sheet to the accused and set Oct 4 for framing charges against him.

Hijazi, who is out on bail, has been booked in the case in the wake of the Supreme Court’s order in the Panama Papers case for allegedly tampering with financial records of the Sharif’s company.

A four-member FIA team, constituted by the apex court to look into the JIT’s allegations, had proved the record tampering claims.

It found chairman SECP Hijazi guilty of record tampering and recommended criminal proceedings against him and two of his subordinates – Ali Azeem and Maheen Fatima – under Section  466, 472, PPC read with 5(2) Prevention of Corruption Act (PCA) 1947.
