NAB adjourns Ishaq Dar’s assets case till January 18

LAHORE: The accountability court has adjourned Ishaq Dar’s assets case till January 18 without moving the proceedings further in today’s hearing.

Justice Muhammad Bashir adjourned the hearing on Tuesday after the NAB special prosecutor submitted a copy of the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) stay order to the accountability court.

Earlier in December, The IHC barred the accountability court from holding proceedings in the case till January 17, while hearing the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader’s petition against the anti-graft court’s issuance of non-bailable arrest warrants against him and an order declaring him a proclaimed offender.

During the last hearing of the reference in December 2017, four witnesses recorded their statements and presented Ishaq Dar’s salary and assets records before the court. The witnesses included private bank officer Afsar Faisal Shehzad, Cabinet Division Deputy Secretary Qamar Zaman and National Assembly Director Budget Sherdil Khan.
