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 ministerialslot owing to serious corruption charges and the pending case against him in the Accountability Court Islamabad.
As the hearing commenced, judge Muhammad Bashir asked the guarantor for Ishaq Dar, Ahmed Ali Qudoosi regarding attendance of finance minister.
Judge Mohammad Bashir issued the warrant on the grounds of "continued absence" from the court, according to a court statement.
Earlier in the morning, the case was postponed till 12:30 PM as the investigation officer could not reach the court on time.
The court had been in session for the proceedings of a corruption reference against Dar, who is accused of amassing assets of an approximate value of Rs831.7 million; disproportionate to his known sources of income.
During hearing, the team of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) submitted a report regarding the four bank accounts of Hussain Nawaz.
In response, Qudoosi had stated that Dar, who is presently in London, will fully recover in three to six weeks.
Subsequently, the hearing was then adjourned until November 21.
The minister skipped the previous three hearings at the pretext of medical treatment.
The NAB also moved an application seeking ratification of the seizure of more assets owned by the minister.
On July 28, a five-member Supreme Court bench had ordered NAB to file three references against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and one against Dar, on petitions filed by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf's Imran Khan, Jamaat-i-Islami's Sirajul Haq and Awami Muslim League's Sheikh Rashid Ahmed.
