ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan, alleges that Federal Finance Minister, Ishaq Dar, has transferred $4 million to Dubai to escape tax liability, Samaa reported Friday.
Latest in the string of his accusations against ruling PML-N, the PTI chief claimed that Ishaq Dar is involved in ‘illegal’ transfer of $4 million from Pakistan to Dubai.
The PTI chief further claimed that Dar is hindering Pakistan’s agreement with Switzerland to bring back money.
He said recent friendly ties between PPP and PML-N “are an accord to save each other’s black money.”
“It’s very shameful that Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari has kept their bank accounts, jewelries and other assets abroad. Both are in a nexus to save their illegal wealth,” asserting that his party would bring back the “looted money” after coming into power.
Speaking to Samaa, Ishaq Dar admitted that the money was transferred to his children, but said it was not sent from Pakistan.
“It was a gift for my kids. I have earned it as a chartered accountant and foreign adviser,” he claimed, saying the transfer was properly documented in all government records.
Making counter allegation, Dar said Khan is involved in embezzlement of charity money. “Khan must answer who is financing his sons. He must quit his politics of cheating.”
Dar urged Khan to show ‘political maturity’ for resolving issues and reforming the system. – Samaa
