Islamabad: Farooq H Naek, adviser to former Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari, called the latest death rumors “baseless”.
“The report about Zardari’s death is baseless. He has several illnesses and back pain, but he is at home due to a coronavirus pandemic,” adviser to the Pakistani People’s Party (PPP) of Pakistan told Pakistani daily on Thursday.
The clarification comes amid viral videos and rumors are circulating widely on Pakistani social media about Zardari giving up after prolonged “bad health”. Reports claim that Zardari died and the party is trying to keep progress so as not to “hysteria” within the party ranks.
Naek made a statement during an “informal conversation” with the media after hearing the case against PPP leader Khursheed Shah. Zardari is home and recovering, Naek explained.
The former Pakistani president was given a guarantee by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on medical grounds in December 2019 in connection with two money laundering cases. The cases were brought to him by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) – Pakistan’s anti-corruption body.
PPP Chair Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had previously clarified that his father’s health was far better.
“When he is [Zardari] “being detained by this government in Islamabad … we are all very worried, but, since he was transferred to Karachi, he has been much better,” Bilawal Bhutto said a few days ago, according to The Express Tribune.
Zardari senior was arrested by the NAB agency on 10 June 2019, just a year after the Islamabad High Court rejected his bail request before his arrest.
Zardari was transferred to PIMS from a judicial detention in Adiala Prison in Rawalpindi after the medical council declared that the former president was suffering from heart problems, diabetes, and other illnesses and needed urgent medical treatment.
