Attorney General of Pakistan Anwar Mansoor on Tuesday informed the Supreme Court that consultations are underway with concerned departments regarding bringing back former finance minister Ishaq Dar.
A three-member bench of the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar resumed hearing a case pertaining to Dar’s return to the country.
As the hearing went underway, the attorney general said, “Dar’s diplomatic and other passport have been cancelled.”
“The Ministry of Interior has also blacklisted the former finance minister on National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) request,” he further said.
When the attorney general informed that Dar has no valid travel documents, the chief justice questioned, “Then how will he come back?”
“There is a system in place through which he can be brought back,” the attorney general responded.
As AGP Mansoor presented his arguments, Justice Nisar asked him “whether he has reviewed this matter”. The attorney general responded, “I have spoken to concerned authorities regarding Dar’s return.”
