The accountability court issued arrest warrants for Finance Minister Ishaq Dar for failing to attend the hearing as the court reserved its judgment in the case.
At the start of the hearing, Dar’s counsel Khawaja Haris had requested the court to exempt the finance minister to appear before the court as he fell ill late in the night and had to be taken to London for a medical check-up.
Upon this NAB’s prosecutor argued that these were delaying tactics and requested the court to issue arrest warrants for the finance minister.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) issued a “freezing order” on October 18 regarding 30 bank accounts and assets of Dar, according to court documents.
