London (February 25, 2018): Former finance minister Senator Ishaq Dar has announced to return to the country and said that he will return to Pakistan after his medical treatment concludes.
According to reports, Dar was visiting Begum Kulsoom Nawaz — who is undergoing cancer treatment in London since August last year — to inquire about her health.
“Pakistan is my country and I will definitely return to it,” he said.
He said that he was presently receiving medical treatment in London and would return back as soon as his doctors give the go ahead.
Dar, a close aide of Pakistan Muslim League-N chief Nawaz Sharif, is accused of possessing assets disproportionate to his declared sources of income. A reference against him was filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in light of the Supreme Court’s July 28 verdict in the Panama Papers case.
