ISLAMABAD (APP) – Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on Friday said the case against him in National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was falsely framed and the decision of its executive board had validated his stance.

Talking to a private news channel, the minister said he had been repeatedly claiming that there was no charge of corruption or misappropriation against him.

Dar said, “I was surprised when in 2015 NAB presented a list of 252 pending cases to the court of Justice Jawad S. Khawaja in which my name was also included. At that time I also stated that it was all rubbish and had strongly reacted to the situation.”

Dar said he had challenged NAB to produce evidence if there was any and prosecute him. Otherwise, close the case. “Thanks to God finally they have realized their mistake and closed down the case.”

Dar said in the list of 252 cases two cases were framed on the basis of anonymous complaints and it was the duty of NAB to investigate these complaints.
