ISLAMABAD - Federal Information Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Monday announced that the government has decided to reinvestigate Hudaibiya Paper Mills case against PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shehbaz Sharif to bring the matter to its logical conclusion.

In a tweet on Monday, the Information Minister said that “today the legal team briefed the Prime Minister” regarding cases against Shehbaz Sharif. He said instructions are being issued to all departments concerning Hudaibiya Paper Mills case.

Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said Hudaibiya Paper Mills case is tip of the iceberg of “Sharif family’s” corruption. He said Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif are the main accused in this case. The Minister said method used to send money abroad in Hudaibiya was later adopted in other cases. Therefore, it is very important to bring this case to an end.

In another tweet, Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Farrukh Habib said Hudaibiya Mills’ matter is an open and shut case. He says everyone knows that the Sharif family, in connivance with ex-Chairman of National Accountability Bureau Qamar-u-Zaman, prevented the NAB to file an appeal in this case.


Meanwhile, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain Monday said there was no difference between the narrative of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Javed Latif, Altaf Hussain and banned terrorist organisation Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA). In a tweet, he said senior PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi himself condemned Javed Latif’s anti- state remarks.

He said Javed Latif should seek unconditional apology for his statement. Fawad said under Article 5 of the Constitution, it was mandatory for every citizen to be loyal to the state and not allowed to deviate from it.
