Court orders pasting last notice at Dar’s residence

ISLAMABAD –  Accountability Court Islamabad judge Mohammad Bashir directed prosecution to display the last notice at former finance minister Ishaq Dar at his residence and outside the court premises, as part of process to declare him proclaimed offender.

The court on November 21 had initiated the process of declaring Ishaq Dar proclaimed offender and the deadline of 10 days would be expiring today (Thursday), while the court would take up the assets beyond means reference against him on December 4 and would most likely to declare him proclaimed offender.

On previous date of hearing, the court had also issued show-cause notice to his guarantor Ahmad Ali Qadoosi as to why his surety bond of Rs5 million was not forfeited as he had given the surety for Ishaq Dar’s bail and that he would not skip the court proceedings.

The guarantor, Ahmad Ali Qadoosi, on previous date of hearing had sought three weeks time to bring back Ishaq Dar to face the trial.

He further informed the court that Ishaq Dar was admitted in London hospital and doctors had advised him not to travel.

The court had rejected the plea of the guarantor and issued notice to prosecution for November 30 for reply on the issue, and as the 10-day deadline would also be expiring on Thursday the court would likely forfeit the surety of the guarantor.

The assets reference was filed by the NAB against Dar for amassing wealth beyond his known sources of income in compliance with the Supreme Court’s July 28th verdict in the Panama Papers case.
