The court on Monday granted an extension in interim pre-arrest bail to the former President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur till the 23rd of January in the case regarding money laundering through the fake accounts.
Moreover, the leader of Pakistan People’s Party has submitted his response on the alleged possession of fake accounts in the top court of Pakistan.
The response submitted by the former President stated that he had not done anything wrong, and expressed certain reservations regarding the ongoing inquiry against him by concluding that the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) had not submitted concerned documents and witnesses testimony in the case.
Furthermore, the response said that the accusations were entirely based on “political victimisation”.
Besides, Asif Ali Zardari pleaded with the court to reject the report established by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) while terming it ‘detrimental’ for the sanctity of the court of law.
The plea further stated that the Zardari family reserves the right for defence, and the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) lacked mandate of recommending the matter to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
It said that Faryal Talpur had already filed assets details
with the Federal Bureau of Revenue (FBR).
