I have no property anywhere outside Pakistan; Dar rejects govt claims
LONDON (92 News) – Former finance minister Ishaq Dar on Sunday rejected claims of the government, saying that he doesn’t have any property outside Pakistan.
Refuting claims of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Special Assistant Shehzad Akbar that he holds ownership of two apartments in London, Dar challenged Akbar to prove his any property anywhere outside Pakistan.
“If Akbar is true than he should reveal the details of my flats publically,” the former finance minister asked. He said that the accusations are part of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) traditional politics campaign.
Ishaq Dar termed that the government is levelling baseless allegations against him to divert people’s attention from its failure in addressing genuine issues.
Dar claimed that the PTI government is using the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for political victimisation.
Earlier, the Accountability Court has given authority to the Punjab government for auction of Dar’s assets and confiscation of his bank accounts in Pakistan on a plea by the NAB.
NAB had filed the petition after Dar went to London for medical treatment and continues to abscond in corruption cases against him in the accountability court.
