ISLAMABAD: Former finance minister Ishaq Dar has denied all allegations made by Prime Minister Imran Khan’s advisor on accountability that he owns two flats in London, a private media outlet reported.
He said that the claim by Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Accountability Shahzad Akbar that he owns two flats in London is “utterly false, vindictive and part of the ongoing campaign against him, and challenged him to publicly share details of the flats that he claims to have found.
Dar replying to the joint press conference of Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and Shahzad Akbar on Friday in which Shahzad Akbar claimed, “We have found two more flats of Ishaq Dar in London which were not part of this case before. We have passed details of these flats to the NAB with a request to make it part of the reference (against Ishaq Dar). There are many benaamis in the NAB reference. These two flats are in the name of Ishaq Dar.”
The former finance minister stated, “I categorically reject the lie of Shahzad Akbar that I own two flats in London. This claim is utterly false, vindictive, mala fide and part of the ongoing scripted campaign against me. I challenge Akbar to produce proof of ownership of these flats before the public and share details of these properties without wasting time.”
He said that he does not own properties abroad.
“As a matter of fact I don’t own any property outside Pakistan, neither in London, as claimed by Akbar nor in any other part of the world. Furthermore, I do not own any Benaami asset whatsoever in any part of the world.”
