The National Accountability Bureau on Wednesday summoned Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and his family to submit details of their assets.

According to Express News, NAB has issued summons for the finance minister and his wife to submit details of their assets to the bureau tomorrow (Thursday) while his sons have been asked to appear before the bureau on November 6.

Dar, who is currently in London, is also likely to return to Pakistan on November 2 to appear before an accountability court in a NAB reference case pertaining to assets beyond means.

Arrest warrant issued for Dar

The court on Monday had issued bailable arrest warrants for Dar after he failed to appear before the court the NAB reference case.

Interestingly, both Sharif and Dar first headed to Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah and then went to London. The court issued similar orders against both the key politicians of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) following their absence from the court.

In the reference, NAB has alleged that the finance minister acquired assets and ‘pecuniary interests’ and resources beyond his known sources of income in his own name and in the name of his dependents amounting to Rs831.678 million.
