The Islamabad Accountability Court has suspended the perpetual arrest warrant of Muslim League (N) leader and former finance minister Ishaq Dar in today’s hearing.
Accountability Court Judge Muhammad Bashir heard the application against the perpetual arrest warrant of Ishaq Dar. Ishaq Dar’s lawyer Qazi Misbah appeared in front of the court and stated the arguments. The court, while allowing Ishaq Dar to surrender, ordered that he should not be arrested on his return to Pakistan till October 7.
The judge further said that the court would scrap the arrest warrants when Ishaq Dar presents himself before the court.Ishq Dar’s lawyer assured the court that he would appear before the court straight after landing in Pakistan.
It should be noted that Ishq Dar has submitted a plea in Islamabad accountability court and challenged his arrest warrants in a graft case. Ishaq Dar, a former finance minister, was charged with corruption earlier in 2017, and the National Accountability Bureau filed a reference against him.
According to the NAB reference, the accused had acquired resources and financial assets worth approximately Rs831.678 million in his name or the names of his dependents. The assets outweigh his known sources of income.
