ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has asked the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) to provide full bank account details of Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, his family members and National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) President Saeed Ahmad.
The NAB has sought, by August 25, extensive details, such as account statements from inception to date, all debit and credit vouchers, record of closed bank accounts and any other facility granted to the mentioned persons.
These details have been asked for in connection with “investigations against Ishaq Dar for accumulation of assets beyond known sources of income”, says a NAB letter sent to the SBP.
The SBP has been requested to contact all banks in the country to gather the required information.
Specifically, details of bank accounts of Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, his wife Tabassum Ishaq Dar, his sons Ali Mustafa Dar and Mujtaba Husnain Dar and Asma Ali Dar, the wife of Ali Mustafa Dar, have been sought. Banking transactions and related banking record of NBP President Saeed Ahmad has also been asked for.
The Supreme Court had, in its verdict on the Panamagate case, ordered the NAB to file four references against former PM Sharif, his family members and others within six weeks before accountability courts in Rawalpindi and Islamabad on the basis of the material collected and referred to by the Joint Investigating Team (JIT).
