Court adjourns Ishaq Dar’s case till June 19


ISLAMABAD: An accountability court on Wednesday adjourned the hearing of an illegal assets case against former finance minister Ishaq Dar after the investigation officer failed to record his statement.

The court ordered the NAB officer to bring an attested copy of Supreme Court’s verdict and adjourned hearing till June 19.

On May 27, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between Pakistan and the British government for kicking-off legal procedures to bring back former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar back to the country.

Mirza Shahzad Akbar, Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Accountability, took to Twitter to reveal the news.

“Productive two days meetings in London with UK Home Secretary @sajidjavid & FCO MoS @MarkFieldUK. UK signs first ever MoU for extradition to Pakistan, setting legal basis for the extradition of Ishaq Dar in absence of a treaty,” Mirza Shahzad Akbar tweeted.
