Court to indict Sharif on Oct 2

The corruption reference, pertaining to Dar's owning assets that are disproportionate to his known sources of income, was filed by the National Accountability Bureau in light of the Supreme Court's July 28 judgment in the Panama Papers case.

The court had rejected a request by Dar's counsel, Amjad Parvez, to adjourn the case for a week so that he could peruse the voluminous report. Sharif's political secretary Asif Kirmani, who accompanied him at the hearing, informed the judge that Sharif's wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz was unwell and thus, his children were in London, looking after their ailing mother.

As per details, Dar appeared before the accountability court today [Wednesday], where no media representatives were allowed to enter.

The Judge of the Court, Muhammad Bashir read out the charges during hearing on Wednesday. "The committee recommended that Ishaq Dar step down to save the country's name from being defamed further", announced chairman of the Standing Committee on Finance Saleem Mandviwala. He was then allowed to leave the court.

A situation of chaos was observed outside the accountability court when Dar arrived for the hearing.

The judge said the court would indict him on corruption charges on October 2, for which his presence would be necessary. It has also been learnt that some irrelevant lawyers and workers of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) were also present in the court premises.

"The charges and indictment of Dar is a joke", he said.

The NAB has filed three cases of corruption and money laundering against Sharif, his sons - Hassan and Hussain, daughter - Maryam, son-in-law - Safdar, and Finance Minister Dar in the Accountability Court in Islamabad and Rawalpindi recently.

He was also imprisoned when the Sharif government was toppled in 1999.

Sharifs family has alleged that the cases are politically motivated.
