Tauqir Sadiq get three years prison by accountability court

Tauqir Sadiq

Pakistan, Islamabad News : The accountability court in Rawalpindi on Tuesday sentence former Ogra chairman Tauqir Sadiq to three years in prison for failing to appear for the hearing for a corruption reference against him.

The court moreover issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Sadiq and ordered the freezing of his assets and properties.

Sadiq, the principal accused in a Rs82 billion scam, fled abroad after the Supreme Court declared his appointment as Ogra chief illegal on November 25, 2011, and ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to start an investigation against him.

Sadiq, who was sentenced in absentia, remains in the UAE and sources told Dawn in March 2013 that some influential figures in the then government had been using their clout within the country and abroad to protect the former Ogra chief.
