One of the largest family owned groups of companies is under investigation for money laundering?

Details of companies that are subsidiaries of this group which are controlled and owned and the  details including  directors, shareholders and balance sheets for the years 2013 and 2016 are being investigated?

Since this group has created number paper  companies with proxy directors most of whom are employees and fictitious overseas shareholders there could have been a possible attempt of money-laundering.

As per the published data most of the employees who nominee shareholders are multi millionaires.(Source- CSE records and employee verification).

Dirty Abans Group has shown their ugly face again by releasing profit figures to the media before releasing to Stock Exchange.

Helpless CSE and SEC is silent?

Abans Finance PLC (member of troubled Abans group) profits for the quarter ended June 2017 has been Rs 9 Mn dropped from 35Mn the previous year same quarter?

This is despite stated capital increasing from Rs 382 Mn to Rs 1,121 Mn  by private placement and Abans group downgrading to associate status?

Is this why the buyers are at Rs 22.00 which is lower than mandatory offer price of Rs 25.00?
