Following the orders of National Accountability Bureau (NAB), the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has seized the former Finance Minister and PML-N’s senior leader Ishaq Dar’s Bungalow in Model Town Lahore.
As per details, NAB had ordered the district government to seize the property over ongoing corruption and assets beyond means investigations against the absconding politician. Lahore Development Authority (LDA) and Assistant Commissioner Model Town presided over the operational proceedings of the seizure. The Assistant Commissioner on the occasion revealed that NAB had given direct and clear orders to seize the property instantaneously.
The Bungalow has now been taken under governmental jurisdiction.
Its worth mentioning that the court has declared, Dar, a proclaimed offender over his perpetual absence from the trial proceedings and attached his movable and immovable properties. Dar, a former senator, has been in London since October last year on account of his medical treatment. Moreover, a reference against the former finance minister was filed by the NAB in light of the Supreme Court’s July 28 verdict in the Panama Papers case.
Earlier in a major development of corruption cases, Pakistan’s government has signed a treaty with British government for extradition of former Finance Minister and Pakistan PML-N’s senior leader Ishaq Dar. According to the copy of the MoU – signed this week and case specific to Ishaq Dar – provides legal basis in the absence of an extradition treaty.
