ISLAMABAD: The accountability court has on Wednesday unfrozen the accounts of former finance minister Ishaq Dar’s Hajvery Foundation and Trust.
Judge Muhammad Bashir conducted the hearing on petitions filed by the ex-minister. Dar’s counsel told the court that many philanthropic bodies work under Hajvery Foundation which gives five to six crore rupees for dialysis to different hospitals.
Hajvery Trust comes under Hajvery Foundation where 93 children are being taken care of, told the lawyer. He said the accounts of both the foundation and the trust have been suspended after the cases, and requested the court to restore them.
He further added that three-year expenses of Hajvery Foundation and Trust have been submitted in the court.
NAB Prosecutor Imran Shafiq said it is true that orphan children live under the custody of Hajvery Trust, but the charity organization has also been used for wrong purposes. He maintained that it is not our intention to deprive the children of their guardianship.
The court had reserved the decision regarding the case, and announced it after a while. Further proceedings have been adjourned till January 31.
