Former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar has filed an application in the Supreme Court requesting for an early hearing of the appeal which has been pending before the court since 2018.
Senator-elect Dar has filed the application through his lawyers. He had originally filed an appeal in 2018 against his declaration as a proclaimed offender by accountability court.
The latest application in the Supreme Court of Pakistan is requesting intervention by the apex court to consider his case on merit.
According to his lawyers, Senator-elect Dar was first “blacklisted” by the Directorate General of Immigration and Passports without any basis or justification on July 24,2018.
That step practically banned the passport authorities in Pakistan and the Pakistani missions overseas from issuing a passport to Dar.
