Finance Minister Ishaq Dar is appearing before an accountability court in Islamabad for the seventh time as trial resumes in the reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against him.

The NAB prosecution has presented two new witnesses against the minister. They are being cross-examined by Dar's counsel Khawaja Haris.

The court had on Wednesday adjourned the sixth hearing of the graft cases till October 23 after the minister's senior counsel left the country in a rush earlier the same day.

The court had indicted Dar last month in a NAB reference pertaining to his owning assets "beyond his known sources of income”.

On July 28, a five-member Supreme Court bench had ordered NAB to file three references against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and one against Dar, on petitions filed by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s Imran Khan, Jamaat-i-Islami’s Sirajul Haq and Awami Muslim League’s Sheikh Rashid Ahmed.

In its reference against the finance minister, NAB has alleged that “the accused has acquired assets and pecuniary interests/resources in his own name and/or in the name of his dependants of an approximate amount of Rs831.678 million (approx)”.
