AC defends Zardari, Faryal Talpur’s indictment in money laundering cases | Instant News


The accountability court adjourned accusations of former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur in the mega money laundering case.

The reference process cannot be held on Friday because judge Azam Khan is not available for trial.

The other main suspect in the referral, Abdul Ghani Majeed, and others appeared before the court. It is hoped that the defense bargaining report relating to the reference will be submitted to the court at the next hearing.

This case will now be heard on 29 July.

On July 6, Zardari could not face charges in the Park Lane reference after his lawyer, Farooq H. Naek, asked the court for additional time to prepare the case.

Zardari has asked for release from court appearances because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The court had previously decided to file an indictment against Zardari through a video link at his hospital or residence in a case of ill health. The clerk of the accountability court has written a letter to NAB, Karachi to finalize arrangements for the indictment of the PPP leader.

In October 2015, the anti-corruption wing of the Federal Investigation Agency in Karachi received a tip-off from suspicious intra-bank transactions from Summit Bank, Sindh Bank and United Bank Limited.

Account holder profiles do not match their income. FIA authorities suspect that these accounts are run by the Zardari Group and the Omni Group, among others.

This case continued until June 2018, when the Supreme Court took a suo moto notification from the fake account and directed the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to investigate the matter.

The investigation team concluded that 32 fake bank accounts were operated by 11 fake entities to launder money from “bribery, land grabbing and diversion of public funds on a large scale.”
