ISLAMABAD (PAK TIMES): The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has submitted a report on the alleged money laundering of almost Rs35 billion in the apex court of Pakistan on Monday.
The Director General of the investigation agency said in a statement that more than 10 Pakistani politicians are allegedly involved in the bank transactions through the fake bank accounts.
Two of the prominent and primary accused in the case are the former president of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari and the other one is his sister Faryal Talpur. The investigation team of the case had summoned the both accused several times, but they failed to appear before the team, he added.
Mian Saqib Nisar, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court had directed the concerned department to submit the complete information of the owners of the bank account before the court.
Zardari’s sister, Faryal Talpur had challenged the FIA’s interim challan on July 30 and submitted Rs2 million in the court as the bail amount.
She took the stance in the court that the investigation team didn’t mention the money laundering charges in the FIR, while her role is also not clearly mentioned in challan, she said while rejecting all the accusations leveled against her.
However, the sources said that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has successfully obtained the undeniable and concrete evidence against the former president and her in the money laundering case.
