Ishaq Dar confirms his return to Pakistan

Ishaq Dar, who served as Pakistan’s finance minister and as a top leader for the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), announced on Tuesday that he would return to Pakistan in July 2022.

During an interview with a private news program, he made the comments in question.

The confirmation comes a day after several news channels reported that Dar is expected to return to Pakistan in July 2022, after the political leadership of the PMLN granted him permission to move ahead on this front. The confirmation from the former finance minister comes a day after those other news channels.

After returning to Pakistan, former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar will be required to face the cases that have been lodged against him, according to Federal Minister Ayaz Sadiq, who made this statement on Monday while speaking to journalists.

During an informal conversation that Ayaz Sadiq had with the journalists in Islamabad earlier today, he stated that “there is no time period that has been determined for the return of Ishaq Dar.” He stated that Dar will take the oath of office as a Senator upon his return to Pakistan and that he will also face the charges that have been lodged against him.

In response to a question, the federal minister stated that the current administration is not considering removing Miftah Ismail from his position as Minister of Finance.

It is important to note that the former minister of finance was granted authorization by the government in April 2022 to apply for a passport and that he successfully applied for and received the passport early in May 2022.

Dar is also the subject of multiple investigations and is suspected of not disclosing the details of his holdings for a period of 22 years.

In 2018, Dar won a technocrat seat in the Senate for Punjab. Because he was still in London at the time, he was unable to take the oath. On the other hand, due to the fact that he did not show up in court on May 8, 2018, his membership in the SC was suspended.
