The Sindh High Court (SCH) on Tuesday (March 19) rejected Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur’s petitions seeking stay order in money laundering transfer case and maintained the apex court’s orders.
Farooq H. Naik, the petitioners’ counsel, argued that the case does not come under the NAB act and the Supreme Court had only directed to forward 16 NAB references to Islamabad.
Former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur on Saturday (March 16) challenged the decision of banking court in Sindh High Court (SHC) in mega money laundering case and asked court to declare the verdict of banking court illegal, null and void. Following the petition of National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) a banking court on Friday (March 15) ordered the transfer of the fake bank accounts and mega money laundering case to Islamabad. During the last hearing on Monday, the court had reserved its decision. The court withdrew the bail granted to former president Asif Ali Zardari, his sister Faryal Talpur and other suspects in the case. The banking court further ordered that the bail bonds of all suspects be cancelled.
