FBR Finds Justice Isa, Wife’s New Undeclared Account: Report
Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has reportedly found an undeclared joint bank account of Supreme Court (SC) judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa and his wife Sarina Isa, which might create further trouble for the judge and his wife who are already facing cases pertaining to their taxes in the apex court. Senior journalist Rauf Klasra, in his vlog, spoke to journalist Zahid Gishkori who gave this update.
He added that the FBR says that this new account is not linked to the ongoing proceedings of the SC. Foreign transactions were also done through this Pakistan-based account. The board is therefore likely to file a case against Justice Isa based on this new information.
Gishkori further told Rauf Klasra that the account was declared by the judge in 2018, but the law making declaration of bank accounts mandatory came in 2014, which means it is sufficient grounds for a fresh case against the judge.
Last week, Justice Qazi Faez Isa, during the hearing of the case pertaining to his request to broadcast the proceedings of his case live, addressed Justice Umar Ata Bandial and said that one day he could be in his [Justice Isa’s] place. “It is not just me. They have prepared files on all judges,” he had told his colleague, Justice Bandial.
