ISLAMABAD: Prosecution witnesses and three other persons that are accused in the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) supplementary reference against former finance minister Ishaq Dar appeared in court on Wednesday.
The supplementary reference accuses the former finance minister and three others for indulging in alleged corruption amounting to $4.06 million.
Dar failed to appear in court because he had left the country in October 2017.
The co-accused to be presented in Judge Muhammad Bashir’s court include Masoor Rizvi, National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) President Saeed Ahmed and Naeem Mehmood.
In its reference against the former finance minister, NAB alleged that “the accused has acquired assets and pecuniary interests/resources in his own name and/or in the name of his dependents of an approximate amount of Rs831.678 million (approx)”.
The reference alleged that the assets were “disproportionate to his known sources of income for which he could not reasonably account for”.
The court has declared him a proclaimed offender over his perpetual absence from the trial proceedings and attached his movable and immovable properties.
