ISLAMABAD July 15 (APP): Minister for Finance, Revenue,
Statistics and Economic Affairs Division Muhammad Ishaq Dar on Friday said the case against him in National Accountability was falsely framed and the decision of NAB Executive Board had validated his stance.
Talking to a private news channel, the minister said, he had
been repeatedly claiming that there is no charge of corruption or misappropriation against him. But, he was surprised when in 2015, NAB presented a list of 252 pending cases to the court of Justice Jawad S Khawaja in which my name was also included.
“At that time also I had stated that it was all rubbish and
had strongly reacted to the situation. I had challenged them to produce evidence if there was any and prosecute me. Otherwise close the case,” he added. “Thanks God; finally they have realized their mistake and closed down the case.”
Dar said in the list of 252 cases, two cases were framed
on the basis of anonymous complaints and it was duty of NAB to investigate these complaints.
He said this false case wasted his precious time and made
him to undergo agony for which he reserved the right to move against those responsible.
“Since I hold the public office, I have not yet decided to
move against them. But, as soon as I relinquish the office, I
shall consult legal aides to move against the Mushrraf era Chairmen of NAB and others responsible,” he added.
