In the ongoing money laundering case, Pakistan Peoples Party or PPP leaders Asif Ali Zardari and her sister Faryal Talpur appeared before Accountability Court on Monday (today).
In money laundering case hearing today, Zardari and Faryal appeared before the court. According to sources, 2 women filed a plea in the court offering to give their testimony in the case. However, they told Arshad Malik, the accountability court’s Judge that they had made a similar request to the NAB chairman as well.
When the judge asked the National Accountability Bureau prosecutor what he thought about the request, the prosecutor said the bureau would first need to check whether the request had been lodged.
Accountability court then directed the women to submit their written pleas before the judge. They also adjourned the next hearing till 16th April.
As many as 2,000 police personnel along with 200 personnel from Punjab Rangers were stationed for the court hearing.
Earlier on March 20, police and PPP workers had clashed outside the NAB court where Asif Ali Zardari and his son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had recorded their statements in the case. The duo were questioned by NAB’s combined investigation team under the supervision of DG NAB Rawalpindi Irfan Mangi for approximately two hours in three cases.
