LAHORE - Han Gey Woo, a Korean national on his business visit to the country, has been deprived of Rs45 million by four brothers of Mandi Bahaud Din.

“I have become mentally sick after becoming virtually a rolling stone between police stations and courts”, said Woo while talking to The Nation on Sunday.

Woo met with Muhammad Ashraf in South Korea 8 years ago who enticed him to invest in cattle farming. As per inquiry report of Assistant Commissioner Phalia district Mandi Bahaud Din, Woo brought US$2,55,000 to Pakistan and started his dairy farming business with Ashraf and his two brothers Muhammad Arshad, Muhammad Afzal in Jokalian area of Phalia, the home town of accused.

Both the parties entered into a business partnership agreement wherein terms and conditions were finalised. After four years, Woo claimed that he was not only given a single penny as profit from his business but also the accused party sold all the cattle.

Woo also paid Rs4.3 million to the accused party for purchasing 3 acres land in his name but one of the brothers deceitfully got the mutation of said land in their names instead of Woo’s.

After that, both the parties started getting registration of cases against each others. Two cases were registered against Woo which were cancelled. Then the accused party in connivance with FIA inspector and other officials got him arrested under FIA 14 foreign Act in FIA district Gujrat.

FIA Inspector Kousar, after getting hefty amount from the accused party, arrested Woo and put him in jail. After cancellation of case, the Korean national complained to FIA Lahore director and an inquiry was conducted against the inspector.

After the allegations were proved true against him, the FIA director general terminated Kousar from his service.

Another officer Nasir Cheema was also beneficiary of these illegal activities who received Rs0.3 million from Woo for supplying manpower on his dairy farm. But no labour was ever provided, Woo claimed.

Now the Korean national has pledged if he was given justice and his properties and assets were retrieved from the grabbers he would love to hand over the same to Pakistan government for any noble cause - a school or hospital.

Woo has also blamed local MPA Tariq Shah from PP-117, who is also the vice-president of PML-N Punjab chapter, that he was main hindrance in the course of law since he was backing the accused.

Woo also contacted Lahore High Court for justice and the court sought report from Mandi Bahauddin RPO. The regional police officer directed the DPO to probe into the matter by associating both the parties, hear them personally and recover the cattle from the accused party.
