Accountability court issues non-bailable arrests warrants against Dar

Court adjourns hearing against Dar till May 30

ISLAMABAD: The accountability court has on Tuesday issued non-bailable arrest warrants against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in a reference of assets beyond his known source of income and adjourned the hearing till November 21.
Earlier in the morning, the case was postponed till 12:30 PM as the investigation officer could not reach the court on time. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor told Judge Muhammad Bashir that the officer was coming from Lahore and was late due to fog.
Ishaq Dar’s guarantor Ahmed Ali Quddusi was also present in the courtroom, and the judge asked him about the arrival of Ishaq Dar. Quddusi told that the minister will fully recover in three to six weeks.
Judge Muhammad Bashir commented that have three weeks not passed yet? Three to six weeks were mentioned in the medical report that was submitted on November 6, the judge remarked.
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.
