It is worth mentioning here that the accountability court had turned down Ishaq Dar's plea to get exemption from appearance on medical grounds during the previous hearing.

However, the court adjourned hearing of the case till Wednesday.

Tuesday submitted an implementation report with accountability court on process to declare former prime minister's sons Hassan and Hassain Nawaz as proclaimed offenders continuously for not appearing before court.
