Pakistan: A report issued by the Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment Lahore (ACE) to the Supreme Court has found irregularities committed by government departments in connection to the setting up of cement plants by DG Khan and Bestway Cement in Chakwal. The investigation followed a probe by the Supreme Court into water usage by cement companies near the Katas Raj Temples, according to the Dawn newspaper. The allegations include a delay by the district government of Chakwal, industries, environment, mine and mineral departments into declaring so-called ‘negative’ areas that would have otherwise prevented the plants being built between 2003 and 2008. Other findings of the report include irregularities into how both companies acquired land and a disregard for environmental protocol.
