ISLAMABAD: Finance Minister Ishaq Dar will appear today in accountability court hearing the Supreme Court-directed corruption reference against him.
Two of the 28 prosecution witnesses will also record their statements against Dar before the court.
Dar was indicted on Wednesday by the accountability court, which he subsequently challenged in the Islamabad High Court. The IHC dismissed his plea.
The corruption reference, pertaining to Dar’s owning assets that are disproportionate to his known sources of income, was filed by the National Accountability Bureau in light of the Supreme Court’s July 28 judgment in the Panama Papers case.
After skipping his first hearing, for which a summons had been issued, Dar appeared in court on Monday after bailable warrants for his arrest had been issued to ensure his presence.
