Interpol issues Ishaq Dar a clean chit

Interpol issues Ishaq Dar a clean chit
November 4, 2019
LONDON (92 News) – The International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) has issued former finance minister Ishaq Dar a clean chit on Monday. According to official papers, the INTERPOL General Secretariat has urged all NCBs to update their national databases accordingly by deleting any data pertaining to Ishaq Dar in their system “as well as to verify that the same is done by all national entities that have access to INTERPOL information”. Ishaq Dar provided evidence to INTERPOL and British authorities that his name was neither in Panama Leaks nor in Supreme Court (SC) judgement of 20th April 2017. He shared with the authorities that the Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) transgressed the mandate of SC and filed an unfounded, mala fide and false report to the SC stating that Ishaq Dar had not filed tax returns in Pakistan for 20 years (1981-2001) with consequential challenging of the legitimacy of his large charitable donations and six years tax non-resident period in Pakistan. He told the authorities that he never missed filing of any tax return in 34 years ended on 30th June 2017. Moreover, JIT also concealed the fact that NAB had 22 years (to 30th June 2007) tax record of Ishaq Dar, and after due process NAB closed the investigation in September 2016, and had issued him a clearance letter. He told the INTERPOL authorities that JIT misled the SC and got an order for filling a reference against him for “assets beyond known sources”, which was tantamount to deceiving the SC and led to the subversion and prevention of justice in his case. Ishaq Dar has told authorities, according to the source, that the incumbent PTI government is subjecting him to political persecution and victimisation. But after reviewing evidence submitted by Dar, the international police agency has cleared him. It has issued him a letter saying that he is not subject to an Interpol notice or diffusion, therefore clearing him in any case. In a letter referenced LA/72615-260, the INTERPOL has issued a certificate to Ishaq Dar about its decision confirming that he’s not subject to any red notice. “The General Secretariat of the International Criminal Police Organisation-INTERPOL hereby certifies that, as of today, Mr Mohammad Ishaq Dar born on 13 May 1950, is not subject to an INTERPOL Notice or diffusion.” The Office of Legal Affairs of General Secretariat of INTERPOL in Lyon, France, has issued the certificate according to official sources. The decision to delete files on Ishaq Dar was taken during the 109th session of the Commission for the Control of INTERPOL’s files.
