Ishaq Dar case: Accountability court seeks reply from NAB on Oct 7 in assets beyond means case

ISLAMABAD: The Accountability Court Judge Muhammad Bashir sought a detailed reply from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Oct 7 regarding the assets beyond means case against Senator Ishaq Dar, who took oath today as Finance Minister.

On Wednesday, Federal Minister for Finance Ishaq Dar surrendered himself before the accountability court in this case to fulfill the condition of the court connected to the suspension of his arrest warrants upon his arrival in Pakistan from London.

Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and PML-N leader Tariq Fazal Chaudhry accompanied Ishaq Dar. Accountability judge Muhammad Bashir heard the case.

During the proceeding, the judge asked from Dar where he has been all these times. Dar answered that he was out of the country for medical treatment and his passport had been canceled, therefore, he could not return.

The court remarked next hearing will be conducted on the warrant dismiss plea along with the NAB’s assets reference.

Afterward, the court issued notice to the NAB and sought a detailed answer by October 7. On Tuesday, Ishaq Dar appeared in the accountability court before taking oath as Senator, but the judge did not turn up in the court.

While speaking to the media outside the court, Dar said he did not have a passport for four years during Imran Khan’s time in power. The minister claimed that Imran had canceled his passport which seemed his priority. He also put my name on the passport control list and later directed all embassies and high commissions to ensure that my passport is not issued to Dar.

Talking to media outside the court, Dar revealed that he was issued a passport two months ago after the coalition government came into power. He said that he had to plan his return.

“Case against me is fake, the actual case was that I had not filed tax returns from 1981 to 2001,” he said. “I never delayed filing tax returns even for 20 minutes in more than 40 years of my life,” he claimed.

Without naming ARY TV, Ishaq Dar claimed that one media house has apologised from me for broadcasting a false tax return propaganda against him. Dar challenged the venomous campaign in the UK High Court. Consequently, the channel apologized in writing and paid Rs30 million as compensation, said Dar.
