    A son-in-law of former chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Chaudhry has been arrested from Dubai in a case regarding the multi-billion Eden Housing Society scam, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry announced on Wednesday.

    The minister described the arrest of Murtaza Amjad by the Federal Investigation Agency in UAE as a "major success" in the government's campaign for accountability.

    He said others accused of allegedly cheating people who had invested their money in the Eden Housing Society included Chaudhry's son, Arsalan Iftikhar, his daughter and the father-in-law of his daughter.

    Some concrete development regarding the arrest of the other accused is expected to emerge today, Chaudhry added.

    The affectees of the Eden Housing Society had on Sunday held a demonstration outside the Lahore residence of Prime Minister Imran Khan, urging him to help them recover their hard-earned money allegedly looted by the group that launched the housing scheme.

    The protesters demanded that the PTI government bring Eden Housing group owner Dr Amjad and others back from Canada and recover the looted money from them or ensure the group completed the project and handed them over the houses and plots promised to them.

    There are at least 10,000 affectees of the group. Dr Amjad and his two sons had managed to flee the country in April last and travel to Canada as the interior ministry did not put their names on the the Exit Control List despite a request by the National Accountability Bureau.

    NAB has estimated the property owned by the Eden group to be worth up to Rs20bn. The bureau has claimed that it would compensate the affectees soon.

    Thousands effected due to this scandal. It was so easy to run away in dubai with looted money of innocent people. Few already did suicide due to Eden housing scam.

    NAB has already freeze the assets of Eden group, the affectees should be compensated as soon as possible. Govt should also look into DHA city fraud involving gen kiyani's brother.
