39

An accountability court in the federal capital on Thursday reserved a verdict in a money laundering case against former president Asif Ali Zardari, Faryar Talpur and others.

Accountability court Judge Nasir Javed Rana reserved the verdict after hearing arguments from the National Accountability Bureau prosecutor and PPP leader’s counsel Farooq H Naek. During the hearing, Naek said his client Asif Zardari was facing charges of Rs30 million corruption, adding that the NAB could not prove the allegations so far. He said the State Bank of Pakistan had not even sent the case to the anti-graft watchdog.
