Sources in the ruling PML-N informed The Nation although Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, in his maiden address to the Parliament after assuming the office of prime minister, admired the finance minister for his role in restoring the economy, now wants his removal from the ministerial slot owing to serious corruption charges and the pending case against him in the Accountability Court Islamabad.

According to the reports, Qudoosi has been ordered to ensure the minister's presence at the next hearing or be prepared to have the Rs.5 million surety bond confiscated.

The court of Judge Muhammad Bashir also issued a show-cause notice to Ishaq Dar's guarantor Ahmed Ali Quddusi.

The court also recorded the statements of NAB investigation officers in three references against sons of former prime minister. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor told the judge that the officer was coming from Lahore, and was late due to fog.

The case has been adjourned until November 21.

Dar's counsel informed the accountability court on Tuesday that Dar will not be able to appear in front of the court for another six weeks, and a petition for a pleader who shall appear on his behalf has been filed.

Dar, who has pleaded not guilty, is receiving medical treatment in London and now faces arrest upon his return to Pakistan. AC Judge Muhammad Bashir took up the reference against Ishaq Dar for hearing, filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in compliance of Supreme Court orders in Panama papers case.

In its reference against the finance minister, NAB has alleged that "the accused has acquired assets and pecuniary interests/resources in his own name and/or in the name of his dependents of an approximate amount of Rs831.678 million (approx)".

The assets are disproportionate to his known sources of income for which he could not reasonably account for, the reference said.
