Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) requested Supreme Court (SC) to form Joint Investigation Team (JIT) regarding money laundering case.
FIA requested Supreme Court to create JIT to probe the money laundering case. However, FIA made the request during the hearing before the bench headed by CJP Saqib Nisar.
During the hearing, Asif Ali Zardari’s counsel requested to postpone the hearing. However, CJP Saqib Nisar rejected the request stating that different lawyers were present in the court.
Earlier, FIA elaborated that they traced Rs 33 billion trail in money laundering case. However, it is a major headway in the ongoing probe into the high profile case.
According to sources, FIA obtained details related to Rs33 billion out of Rs35 billion transferred through different fake bank accounts. FIA conducted raids at sugar mills owned by Omni Group.
