An accountability court on Thursday extended judicial remand of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Khawaja Salman Rafique till May 2 in the Paragon Housing Society scam case.
The imprisoned Khawaja brothers were produced before the accountability judge on completion of their previous 14-day judicial remand.
“It is up to institutions to conduct accountability. The government should focus on the country’s economy and development,” said Saad while speaking to the media outside the court.
The brothers were arrested on December 11 last year after the Lahore High Court rejected their pre-arrest bail plea.
Rafique is accused of holding major shares in Paragon City, however, he denies this and says he only owns a few houses and land in the society.
According to NAB, Saad Rafique colluded with his wife, brother, Qaiser Amin Butt and Nadeem Zia to form Paragon Housing Society. The Lahore Development Authority remarked that the housing project was unapproved.
The former federal minister is accused of misusing his authority and causing billions of rupees loss to the country.
