Government of PakistanFederal govt determined to get anti-corruption law passed: Ishaq Dar

KARACHI, Pakistan: The Federal Finance Minister Senator Muhammad Ishaq Dar on Friday reaffirmed Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) government’s commitment to get the proposed law against corruption passed through the Parliament.

While addressing the brokers and other businessmen at the formal signing ceremony of equity share purchase agreement between Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) and Chinese consortium at the PSX Building in Karachi, the minister said that despite the hindrances created by some political parties, the government would easily sail the bill through Parliament.

“We can do it also through join session of the Parliament,” Ishaq Dar said.

The finance minister said that under the proposed law, Pakistani citizens would have to declare their assets held abroad, and it would be very effective to check money laundering in future.

Ishaq Dar observed that the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) issued 42,000 notices to the companies mostly in Karachi without due consultation with the ministry of finance.

The minister asserted that the government is determined to put the things in the right direction within legal framework.
