ISLAMABAD: Accountability court I resumed on Wednesday a corruption reference hearing against the former finance minister Ishaq Dar for owning assets disproportionate to his declared income. Judge Muhammad Bashir is presiding over the hearing session.

Three more accused, in relation to the supplementary reference, were presented in court today. A private bank’s employee Tariq Saleem and Mohsin, both prosecution witnesses, were also present for the hearing session.

Previously, the Interior Ministry blocked former finance minister Ishaq Dar’s passport and his name was blacklisted.

The former finance minister is accused of possessing assets disproportionate to his declared sources of income.

The case itself involves the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) initiating proceedings against Ishaq Dar for possessing assets that do not equate with his known sources of income, and follows the original Supreme Court verdict in the historic Panama Papers case verdict in July 2017.

NAB had filed an interim reference against Dar in September 2017, who was later indicted in the case but has been absconding since then.

The national watchdog later filed references against National Bank of Pakistan President Saeed Ahmed, Naeem Mehmood and Mansoor Rizvi, and held them as co-accused in the case.
