Ishaq Dar takes notice of COAS, family’s leaked tax information

Says any official who violated the secrecy act made mistake

Federal Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on Monday took notice of the alleged leaked information pertaining to various taxes paid by soon-to-retire Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javaid Bajwa and his family.

Taking notice of the matter, Dar said that the yet-to-be-identified officials from the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) had committed serious errors and violated the Official Secrets Act in divulging the information, if any.

Subsequently, the finance minister directed Tariq Pasha, the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Revenue (with the status of Minister of State), to conduct an investigation into the matter and submit a report within 24 hours.

“They disclosed FBR data concerning tax returns, which is against tax regulations,” Dar declared.
