Non-bailable arrest warrants issued for Ishaq Dar

14 November 2017

ISLAMABAD:An Accountability Court (AC) on Tuesday issued non-bailable arrest warrants against FinanceMinister Ishaq Dar for not appearing despite of repeated summons during the hearing of a reference.

The court also issued show-cause notice Dar's surety-giver Ahmed Ali Qudoosi who was present in the courtroom.

During hearing, the team of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) submitted a report regarding the four bank accounts of Hussain Nawaz.

However, the court adjourned hearing of the case till Wednesday.

In response, Quddusi had said that, according to a November 6 report from a private hospital in London, Dar's recovery is expected to take another six or eight weeks.

It is worth mentioning here that the accountability court had turned down Ishaq Dar's plea to get exemption from appearance on medical grounds during the previous hearing.

The court had also upheld the bailable arrest warrants previously issued against Dar and doubled the surety ordered against the warrants from Rs1 million to 2m. His counsel, Khawaja Harris, had subsequently informed the judges that the finance minister had been admitted to a private hospital in London.

Dar had rejected the allegations levelled by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in its reference prepared following the orders of the Supreme Court in its July 28 verdict in Panamagate case.

The NAB also moved an application seeking ratification of the seizure of more assets owned by the minister.

The reference alleged that the assets were "disproportionate to his known sources of income for which he could not reasonably account for".
