Witnesses record statements before court in assets reference against Dar
Four prosecution witnesses on Monday recorded their statements before an accountability court in assets beyond known sources of income reference against former finance minister Ishaq Dar.
According to details, a private bank officer Faisal Shehzad submitted the details of Ishaq Dar’s bank records in the accountability court of Judge Muhammad Bashir. National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) prosecutors and Ishaq Dar’s lawyers were present on the occasion.
National Assembly Secretariat Director Sherdil Khan told the court that Dar remained Member National Assembly (MNA) from Lahore’s constituency NA-95 from 1993 to 1996, and his per month salary was Rs14,000.
Ishaq Dar was elected as an MNA once again in 1997 but this time he was made a minister as well, said Sherdil Khan.
It is worth mentioning here that the reference has been filed against Dar by NAB upon the apex court’s directions. The accountability court has also sought a report regarding confiscation of the property of Ishaq Dar’s guarantor.
