PESHAWAR (Sarzameen News)- Accountability Court in Peshawar has issued arrest warrants for three Chinese female directors for not appearing in the court in a case pertaining to illegally smuggling surma discovered from the mines in Chitral.
During the hearing, the judge was informed that director of Tuny Pak Mineral Company and her two daughters were summoned several times in the court but they didn’t attend any of the proceedings.
It was also told that the company has been involved in illicit export of surma that has caused $9.5 lac loss to the national treasure.
Justice Naveed Ahmed Khan directed the local police to present the accused in the court on July 11.
It is to be mentioned here that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed a case against this company some three years ago when provincial minister Ziaullah Afridi alleged it of smuggling 413 ton of crushed minerals to China.
On the other hand, the company denied all the allegations and said that a formal written permission was taken from the department of mining and minerals in August 2012 to export 500 ton surma to China for the experimental process.
