The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has further tightened the rope around the PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari as his close aide and citizen of United Arab Emirate (UAE) Nasir Abdullah Lootha ready to become the approver against him in the money laundering case on Monday.
According to details, Nasir has recorded his statement before accountability court under section 164 as the court has nullified his arrest warrant. The Nasir Abdullah is currently working as chairman board of director Summit Bank and he was nominated in the money laundering case. He has recorded his statement in Pakistan.
Nasir Abdullah has refused money laundering allegations and said he was not indulged in any such practice.
However, the final decision to accept him as approved will be taken by the chairman NAB.
NAB Arrests Zardari
NAB had arrested Zardari from his Islamabad residence hours after the IHC dismissed Zardari’s ad-interim bail in two cases related to money laundering of billions through fake accounts. Subsequently, NAB had shifted him to the accountability bureau’s Rawalpindi office.
IHC’s divisional bench comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani had dismissed pre-arrest bail pleas filed by Zardari and Sindh lawmaker Faryal Talpur, which allowed the anti-graft watchdog to arrest Zardari and his sister.
