ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The accountability court on Tuesday adjourned hearing of the assets beyond income reference case filed against former finance minister Ishaq Dar by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in line with the Supreme Court directive in the Panamagate case till January 18.
The accountability court (AC) judge Muhammad Bashir resumed hearing of the case.
During the proceedings, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) special prosecutor submitted a copy of the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) stay order to the accountability court.
The court later adjourned the hearing until January 18.
Dar is accused of possessing assets disproportionate to his declared sources of income.

Dar had been earlier declared a proclaimed offender by the accountability court due to his continuous absence from the proceedings.
On November 23, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi accepted Dar’s request to be relieved of his duties as finance minister. He was relieved of his three roles, including his portfolio in the finance ministry, and was informed of the decision.
