Former President Asif Ali Zardari was arrested on Monday (July 1) in Park Lane case, National Accountability Bureau sources said. Former president Zardari was accused of purchasing 2,460 Kanal land in Islamabad through the park lane company in March 2009. Asif Zardari has more than 25% of shares in Park Lane Company, reports said.
Earlier, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) arrested on June 10 the former president Asif Ali Zardari from his Islamabad residence hours after the Islamabad High Court (IHC) dismissed Zardari’s ad-interim bail in the fake accounts case.
Zardari, Talpur, Omni Group’s Anwar Majid and his sons, and the former Pakistan Stock Exchange chairperson Hussain Lawai are among those being investigated in a case related to money laundering of billions through fictitious bank accounts. In December 2015, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) initiated a discreet investigation into certain bank accounts through which multi-billion rupee transactions have been made after some information came to the fore when an intelligence agency picked up a prominent money changer in an unrelated case.
