The accountability court has sent a notice to the NAB over Ishaq Dar’s plea.

On Wednesday, an accountability court in Islamabad issued notifications to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in response to newly appointed federal minister Ishaq Dar’s petition for the removal of his arrest warrants in the assets beyond means case.

Due to his prolonged absence from the proceedings, the accountability pronounced the PML-N leader a proclaimed offender in a NAB reference on December 11, 2017. Dar was accused of having assets that were disproportionate to his known sources of income by the national anti-graft authority.

NAB filed the complaint in response to the Supreme Court’s decision in the Panama Papers case on July 28.Senator Ishaq Dar surrendered himself before the accountability court today and filed a petition seeking the cancellation of his arrest warrants.

The court then gave notice to the NAB on Dar’s plea and ordered him to appear in court on October 7.”We will hear the motion for cancellation of warrants as well as the reference of assets,” the court said, adjourning the hearing until October 7. (Friday).
