Abdul Razzaq Dawood, Trade Adviser to Prime Minister Imran Khan, appeared before the Sugar Inquiry Commission. The Sugar Commission of Inquiry had summoned Trade Adviser Abdul Razzaq Dawood for a forensic audit of the sugar crisis report.
The Sugar Advisory Board, headed by Abdul Razzaq Dawood, had recommended the export of sugar, after which the Economic Co-ordination Committee (ECC) had permitted to export sugar in October and December 2018.
Earlier in the day, Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and Federal Minister Asad Umer had also appeared before the Sugar Inquiry Commission and his statement was recorded by the commission, while Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has refused to appear before the commission.
It may be recalled that the Sugar Inquiry Commission headed by FIA Director General Wajid Zia is conducting a forensic audit of the FIA report on the sugar crisis in 2018-19.
In this regard, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he was awaiting a detailed forensic audit by a high-level commission which would be conducted by April 25, but later the commission was given another three weeks to submit its report.
