The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday stated that it had completed its probe against three retired military and two civilian officials in the case pertaining to alleged fraudulent allotment of 141 kanals of Pakistan Railways land in Lahore to the management of the Royal Palm Golf Club.

A spokesman for the NAB said the bureau had recorded statements of five officials -- Lt-Gen (Retd) Javed Ashraf Qazi, Lt-Gen (Retd) Saeeduz Zafar, Maj-Gen (Retd) Hamid Hassan Butt, Khursheed Ahmad Khan, former finance member, and Iqbal Samad Khan, ex-general manager (operations) of Pakistan Railways.

The investigation report would be presented in a meeting of the NAB’s executive board this week, the spokesman said.

The NAB spokesman said the bureau had not issued a notice to the Turkish power company Karkey to pay compensation on the matter of the power plant, adding that, the bureau was reviewing the notice from legal and constitutional angles.
