The accountability court (AC) has declared former finance minister Ishaq Dar proclaimed offender due to his continuous absence from the proceedings.

In today’s hearing, Dar’s counsel has submitted his fresh medical report and pleaded the court for delaying its decision of proclaiming Dar as proclaimed offender.

While the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) special prosecutor Imran Shafique opposed the appeal and insisted court to declare Ishaq Dar proclaimed offender due to his incessant absence.

The court has also ordered Ishaq Dar’s bail guarantor Ahmad Qudoosi to bring former finance minister within three days otherwise his surety bond worth 5million rupees will be seized.

The accountability court is hearing a corruption reference against Ishaq Dar which is filed by NAB in the light of Supreme Court’s verdict in Panama Papers’s case.

Dar has been accused of owning assets which are not equal to his declared sources of income. The former finance minister has skipped last six hearing owing to his medical treatment in London.
