London: Former finance minister, Ishaq Dar, on Wednesday approached UK Home Office for extension in visa.

As per details garnered, if accused files petition for political asylum, then he can’t be extradited to home country till arrival of Home Office’s decision.

Ali Dar—son of the former finance minister—confirmed that Dar informed the Home Office officials that the PTI government was maligning him through media, using British govt’s name.

It is pertinent here to mention that UK Home Office is approached usually for visa extension or for seeking political asylum.

Earlier yesterday, Special Assistant to Prime Minister (PM) on Accountability, Shahzad Akbar, revealed that memorandum of understanding (MoU) had been signed for the arrest of former finance minister Ishaq Dar.

He added that Dar will be extradited to Pakistan as soon as the legal procedure in the regard is completed.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had approached the accountability court for the auction of movable and immovable properties of the ex-minister as he is absconding in assets beyond income reference.

The bureau had also seized all properties of Mr Dar that included a house in Lahore, three plots in Al-Falah Housing Society, six acres of land in Islamabad, two-kanal plot in Parliamentarians Enclave, one plot in the Senate Cooperative Housing Society, another plot of two kanals and nine marlas in Islamabad and six vehicles.

On July 28, a five-member Supreme Court bench had ordered NAB to file three references against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and one against Dar, on petitions of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s Imran Khan, Jamaat-i-Islami’s Sirajul Haq and Awami Muslim League’s Sheikh Rashid Ahmed.
