Ishaq Dar, wife's diplomatic passports cancelled by federal govt
LONDON - Pakistan’s federal government reportedly cancelled the diplomatic passports of former federal finance minister Ishaq Dar and his wife, a private news channel reported on Sunday.

The cancellation of the passport means that Ishaq Dar is in London without a travel document and unable to travel to Pakistan to comply with the Supreme Court of Pakistan’s deadline. The SC had given Dar a deadline to appear before it or any other court.

Ishaq Dar and his wife were issued diplomatic passports – a legal entitlement– after surrendering their blue passports when he became Leader of the Opposition in the Senate of Pakistan in 2012 and continued to have the same when he resigned in June 2013 as the Opposition Leader and took oath as a federal Minister.

Pakistan’s Foreign Office has said that Ishaq Dar was bound to surrender his and wife’s diplomatic passports within 30 days of ceasing office as the Federal Finance Minister and that his passport was cancelled over non-compliance.
