Former President and–Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Tuesday (May 28) has challenged the transfer of the fake accounts case from a banking court in Karachi to an accountability court in Islamabad.
The appeal has argued that Zardari is being politically victimized. The appeal added that Zardari had spent time in jail and was acquitted in fake and fabricated cases. According to the appeal, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had started a probe into the fake accounts case and did not nominate Asif Ali Zardari in the interim challan.
The NAB has already filed references in money laundering through fake bank accounts, Pink Residency and illegal award of water supply schemes against him.
On April 13, Zardari had submitted his written response to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Rawalpindi on 54 questions in connection with three cases against him, including Park Lane Estate, Pink Residency, and fake accounts and money laundering. Earlier, following the petition of National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) a banking court on March 15, 2019, ordered the transfer of the fake bank accounts and mega money laundering case to Islamabad.
