NAB Lahore claimed on Thursday that it had recovered Rs0.5 billion from former finance minister Ishaq Dar’s bank accounts and a property as well.
A press release from the bureau quoted Chairman NAB Justice (R) Javed Iqba saying that Rs0.5 billion had been recovered from Dar’s bank accounts and handed over to the Punjab Government.
The bureau also claimed that it recovered a property in Lahore’s Gulberg area spread over four kanals belonging to the former finance minister and handed it over to the Punjab Government as well.
The press release stated that the property would be sold and its proceeds would be handed over to the Punjab Government.
The former finance minister is accused of possessing assets disproportionate to his declared sources of income.
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.
Dar had earlier been declared a proclaimed offender by the accountability court due to his continuous absence from the proceedings.
