ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The accountability court on Monday 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 26.

The accountability court judge Muhammad Bashir heard the reference filed against Ishaq Dar for having assets beyond known means.

In today’s proceedings, three more witnesses recorded their statements, while the counsel of the former finance minister cross examined the witnesses.

The court later adjourned the hearing till January 26 and summoned more witnesses.

Dar is accused of possessing assets disproportionate to his declared sources of income.

The PML-N leader is currently receiving medical treatment in London.

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.
