ISLAMABAD, Sep 12 (SABAH): The Accountability Court returned on Tuesday the corruption references against Finance Minister Senator Muhammad Ishaq Dar and one against the Sharif family to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), asking the anti-graft body to resubmit it after fixing the technical errors.
The court had already sent back on Monday two of the three references against the Sharif family, asking NAB to resubmit them after addressing the court’s objections.
Sources of a private TV channel said the court’s registrar objected that he could not find documents even though they were mentioned in the index of the references.
He asked the bureau to fix the discrepancies and submit all the references again till 14th September so that the proper trial on these references could be started.
On Monday, NAB submitted additional documents to the accountability court’s registrar office, where the process of scrutiny of the references against the Sharif family was under way.
However, sources said many pages of the references do not have page numbers mentioned and some of them have the wrong number printed, according to sources.
Sources further said that some documents are extra and some necessary documents were not attached. The court has given the registrar office until September 14 to completely scrutinise the documents and submit them for hearing.
On September 8, NAB submitted four interim references against the Sharif family and Dar before the accountability court.
