Lahore High Court announces verdict against Ishaq Dar residence conversion into shelter house
ISLAMABAD - Lahore High Court announces verdict against Ishaq Dar residence conversion into shelter house.
The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday issued a stay order against the conversion of former finance minister Ishaq Dar’s residence into a shelter home.
LHC Justice Shahid Bilal Hassan was hearing a petition filed by Tabbasum Dar.
Tabbasum, Ishaq Dar's wife, in her petition had pleaded that the Punjab government had turned the house into a shelter home illegally and that the Islamabad High Court had already issued a stay order in this regard.
“Punjab government’s move is against the law and constitution. The Punjab government went against the High Court’s order when it converted the house,” the petition stated.
The petition further said that the government was taking political revenge and that the court should declare the Punjab government’s move as null and void.
The court in its order directed the provincial government to submit its response within 10 days and issued a stay order against the conversion of Dar’s house into a shelter home.
