Dar assets case: Court reserves decision on suspects’ plea against indictment | Pakistan
ISLAMABAD: The trial court on the case of accumulation of assets against former Finance Minister Senator Ishak Dar on Monday reserved his decision on accusing the other accused of their indictment Today.
Judge Mohammad Bashir, presiding over the case, on March 5 ordered to indict the President of the National Bank of Pakistan Said Ahmed, Naem Mehmud and Mansour Rizvi.
These three were charged with an additional reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against the former finance minister.
Two of the three defendants in the case filed a petition last week against their planned indictment. Lawyer Mehmud and Rizvi reported to the judge that NAB had provided its customers with a link to 700 pages, many pages of which were unclear.
The Accountability Tribunal has notified the NAB of its response to the request.
After hearing the arguments of the lawyer of suspects Kazi Misba, the court overturned his order on this issue.
The prosecutor NAB opposed the plea of guilty plea, arguing that this is a delay defense tactic.
Dar, the closest assistant to the head of the Muslim Muslim League of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif, is accused of belonging to assets incommensurate with his declared sources of income.
The NAB filed an intermediate link to the Dar in September last year in the light of the verdict of the Supreme Court of July 28, 2017 in the Panamanian case.
The newly submitted supplementary link is based on seven volumes and includes data from the defendant's account, with transactions amounting to $ 4.06 million, according to Nab's special prosecutor Imran Shafiq.
Dar was recently re-elected to the Pakistani Senate.
