The case of assets beyond means reference against former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar has been reopened by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) today (Tuesday, September 26).

Ishaq Dar, the leader of the PMLN and former finance minister, was called by the Islamabad Accountability Court on October 10 in the case of assets beyond means reference, according to reports in the media. Senator Ishaq Dar has received a summons notice from Accountability Court Judge Muhammad Bashir. In accordance with the NAB statute revisions, the court earlier returned the referral to the NAB.

The NAB brought the matter back to the accountability court and hearings have begun after the Supreme Court pronounced the changes invalid.

The former finance minister stressed on Monday the PML-N’s aim to advance Pakistan to the position of the world’s 24th largest economy. Following a party meeting, Dar announced to the media in London that talks about PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif’s return to Pakistan have come to an end.

Ishaq Dar declared that Nawaz Sharif’s leadership, in line with the party’s open platform, would lead the nation toward development. Dar made fun of the opponents by claiming that “both international and some domestic entities sought to duplicate the country’s economic trajectory with that of Sri Lanka, but their coordinated efforts were thwarted.”
