Former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar lands in big trouble
ISLAMABAD -Former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar lands in big trouble.
An accountability court in Islamabad rejected on Thursday a plea against the auctioning of former finance minister Ishaq Dar's property in Lahore.
The former minister's wife Tabassum had filed an application in the court requesting it not the auction Dar's property in Gulberg Lahore, as it was her property. During the proceeding, headed by accountability court judge Mohammad Bashir, her request was rejected after which the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) will be auctioning the properties.
Last year, NAB had seized Dar's movable and immovable assets after Judge Bashir accepted the bureau's request. The assets included six vehicles, a two-kanal plot in Parliamentarians Enclave, Islamabad, three plots in Al Falah Housing Society, Lahore and six acres of land in Islamabad among other assets.
On Monday, Interpol rejected Pakistan's request to issue a red warrant against the former minister and gave him a clean chit. The interpol has also directed its National Central Bureaus (NCBs) to delete all data files in their systems on Dar. It also urged NCBs to update their national databases accordingly and ensure that the same is done by all national entities that have access to interpol information.
