Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari during an interview with local news channel said that, authorities will have to first prove that he had deposited money in fake bank accounts.
“By and large, I have an understanding of the law…Every other day surfaces a milkman or a sweetmeat seller, and money is found in their accounts,” he slammed. “They have to first prove that I went and got an account opened, but that is not happening.”
Zardari said if it is established that he got the accounts opened, then a case could be lodged against him. “But that too I can defend telling them, ‘Yes, I deposited money in his account, it is my choice’,” Zardari said. He further said bank officials are at fault, when asked who is responsible if the account owner didn’t know about millions of money deposit in his account.
The FIA has been investigating 32 people in relation to money laundering from fictitious bank accounts, including former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur.
