Former finance minister Ishaq Dar lands in big trouble

LONDON – The Pakistan government on Monday has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with UK for extradition of former finance minister Ishaq Dar.

The MoU was signed after Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan’s Adviser on Accountability Shahzad Akbar held meetings with British Home Secretary Sajid Javid. The advisoe expressed hope for the smooth process of extradition of Ishaq Dar.

Earlier, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had approached the accountability court for the auction of movable and immovable properties of the ex-minister as he is absconding in assets beyond income reference.

The bureau had also seized all properties of Mr Dar that included a house in Lahore, three plots in Al-Falah Housing Society, six acres of land in Islamabad, two-kanal plot in Parliamentarians Enclave, one plot in the Senate Cooperative Housing Society, another plot of two kanals and nine marlas in Islamabad and six vehicles.

On July 28, a five-member Supreme Court bench had ordered NAB to file three references against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and one against Dar, on petitions of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s Imran Khan, Jamaat-i-Islami’s Sirajul Haq and Awami Muslim League’s Sheikh Rashid Ahmed.
