Islamabad (July 17, 2017): Finance Minister Ishaq Dar has submitted his reply as well as application over the Panama JIT report at the Supreme Court.
Dar has called the contents of the JIT report contrary to facts and malafide and has asked the three-member special bench monitoring the implementation of the Supreme Court’s order in the Panama Papers case to reject the report.
The JIT report also contains details from 2003 to 2008 when I was outside the country. The details of my income and assets with proofs are there from 1983 to 2016. The fact that I did not seek tax exemption is not being verified.
JIT’s malafide is obvious from the fact that it also asked me questions about the monies that I gave away as charity. JIT report is incorrect, malafide, baseless, and full of fabricated facts.
Dar’s reply further said that he issued orders to the FBR to extend full cooperation to the JIT and that he himself sent all the tax documents to the JIT on July 3, 2017.
JIT says that the FBR did not give it the tax record of fr the year 2001 and from 2003-2007. The FBR too provided my full tax record to the JIT on July 8, 2007 the delivery receipt of which from the FBR is also there.
If JIT had so wished it could had gotten all of my records from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) which has a representative in the JIT, the reply says. JIT has attempted to defame me and mislead the court, Dar says in his reply.
