The NBP president has been nominated as a co-accused in the reference filed against Dar for possessing assets beyond his known sources of income and has been charged with opening up bank accounts allegedly used for money laundering by the former finance minister.

“NAB laws do not apply to the accusations leveled against my client,” the NBP president’s counsel added.

However, NAB’s special prosecutor Imran Shafiq arguments responded that he still has to present 55 to 56 witnesses to present his case.

The court will announce verdict on June, 20th.
