Rs 80 crore pay to Ishaq Dar by UAE Sheikh is highly illogical: SC
Three-member SC bench comprising Justice Ejaz Afzal, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijazul Ahsan resumed the hearing of Panamagate during which Tariq Hassan presented his arguments on behalf of his client, Ishaq Dar.
Justice Ijaz remarked you have brought such a big box, which will remain under discussion on television channels for rest of the days whereas Justice Azmat asked the counsel that are you following Joint Investigation Team (JIT).
Justice Ejaz, further added that it may lead to investigation against the finance minister,since Ishaq Dar was involved in Huddaibiya Paper Mill and has failed to satisfy JIT.
In response to it, Tariq Hassan said that record was presented before JIT but it did not consider it.
Justice Ijaz said that Dar’s assets have increased from 9 billion to 837 million in span of five years.
Justice Ijaz further asked about the pay of Dar as Sheikh Nahyan Mubarak’s advisor. It is highly illogical to say that Sheikh gave Dar 80 crore in this time period, he added.
