Court hears assets case against Ishaq Dar
ISLAMABAD: An accountability court on Wednesday resumed the hearing of a reference filed against former finance minister Ishaq Dar for allegedly accumulating assets beyond his known sources of income.
Judge Muhammad Bashir is presiding over the trial proceedings in Islamabad. National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) president Saeed Ahmed and two other co-accused were also present in the court.
The PML-N leader is in London and has been declared fugitive over his absence from case hearing despite repeated court summons.
The counsel of accused Mansoor Raza and Naeem Mehmood was presenting his arguments on petitions seeking their acquittal in the case.
The three co-accused were nominated in a supplementary reference for allegedly assisting Dar in accumulating unsolicited assets.
On Feb 26, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed a supplementary reference against Ishaq Dar in the assets case.
Lately, the Supreme Court was informed that red warrants against the former finance minister have been issued after the Ministry of Interior’s approval to seek Interpol’s help to bring him back to the country.
