Court indicts Ex-SECP chief Zafar Hijazi in record tampering case

Islamabad (Staff Report): A local court on Friday indicted former Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) chairman Zafar Hijazi in record tempering case.


Hijazi appeared before special judge Irum Niazi’s court where he was indicted in indicted for tampering records of Sharif family’s documents.

 “You have tampered the records of Chaudhry Sugar Mill and pressured your subordinates to do that,” the charge sheet read.

After the court read out the indictment, the ex-SECP chief denied the charges stoutly and said they were baseless.

“I have not tampered the records and therefore no case charges can be put against me,” he said.

The FIA had registered a case of record tampering against Hijazi on the directives of the Supreme Court of Pakistan which is hearing a case against the Sharif family’s offshore assets. He was arrested on July 21 but was later granted bail after the payment of the surety bonds.
