Khaqan Abbasi writes to FIA DG to share info on sugar crisis

Former prime minister and PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has written to the FIA director general to allow him to provide information in connection with unexplained hike in sugar price under the law.

In his letter addressed to the DG FIA and chairman inquiry commission Wajid Zia, the PML-N senior vice president said “We’re informed by the inquiry commission about the time and venue, enabling us to appear before it to present useful information regarding the price hike in sugar due to bad governance and corruption.”

Abbasi said that he wants to appear along with his colleague and former federal minister Khurram Dastagir Khan, adding that “Under Section 9 of Pakistan’s Commission of Inquiry Act 2017, every citizen can provide information in a matter under-investigation.”

He further said that “under the law, the inquiry commission is liable to bring under consideration any information or evidence put before by any citizen.”
