Thatta water reference Court summons Zardari, others



An accountability court in Islamabad on Monday summoned former president and PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari in the Thatta Water Supply Scheme reference, an offshoot of the multi-billion scam involving money laundering through fake bank accounts.
The accountability judge also issued a notice to Nadeem Bhutto, in-charge of the Naudero House and co-accused Ashfaq Leghari.
They have been instructed to turn up on Feb 12. According to the reference, the instant case pertains to illegal award of a contract by Special Initiative Department for water supply scheme, Thatta to a private contractor.
Zardari was released after being granted bail by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Dec 11 on medical grounds.–INP
