LONDON (– Federal Minister for Finance Ishaq Dar is likely to not appear before Accountability Court on September 25 as Sharif family has insisted him to stay in London.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leadership discussed the issue of Ishaq Dar’s resignation in consultative meeting held on Saturday. During the session, it was decided to reschedule all meetings due to which Dar won’t be able to return to Pakistan.
It is to be mentioned here that federal minister didn’t appear before the court on September 20 after which his bailable arrest warrant was issued. National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had raided his house and also frozen his assets.
Earlier, Senate Standing Committee on Finance had urged Ishaq Dar to immediately resign from his office as NAB’s corruption reference against him has created a bad name in the financial sector.
Supreme Court had directed NAB to prepare references in which one was regarding Al-Azizia Steel Mill while the other two were about London flats and 16 offshore companies held by the Sharif family.
A reference against Dar for having assets more than asset was also ordered.
SC had disqualified Nawaz Sharif in Panama case verdict on the basis of his non-withdrawn salary, considering it part of his assets on July 28.
