Supreme Court suspends Ishaq Dar's senate membership

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Tuesday suspended membership of former finance minister and close relative of PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif Senator Ishaq Dar.

A SC bench headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar heard the case regarding the acceptance of Dar's nomination papers in the recent Senate elections.

The CJP questioned why Dar did not show up in court despite being summoned to which his counsel said he was unwell.

Justice Ijazul Ahsan remarked that the former finance minister seems healthy when he appears on TV shows but submits medical reports when court summons him.

The petitioner had claimed an absconder cannot be elected to the august house.

Dar was elected senator in March but his election was challenged on the grounds that he is facing corruption charges in the accountability court and has been declared an absconder.
