Islamabad (NA Report) In another letter to President Arif Alvi, Supreme Court’s Justice Qazi Faez Isa has claimed that his children and spouse, who own three properties in the United Kingdom, are not his dependents.
The SC judge has also requested the president to provide a copy of the reference against him.
Regarding the allegation about violating Section 116 (1) (b) of the Income Tax Ordinance 2001, Justice Isa said he had not received any notice from the tax authority.
“Secondly, my children are not minors nor have they been so for quite a while. Thirdly, neither my spouse nor my children are my dependents. Fourthly, Section 116 (1) (b) of the Income Tax Ordinance 2001 is not penal provision,” stated the letter written by Justice Isa.
The judge told the president that he had been maliciously maligned by half-truth by the members of the government, which was completely distressing for his family and himself.
The government sleuths surely knew that after completing their education, both my children legally worked in London. The details of properties disseminated by the members of the government were those in which they lived with their spouses.
“The properties are owned by those in whose names they stand. No attempt was made to conceal their ownership, neither were they held under a trust nor a special purpose or offshore company,” stated the five-page letter.
