Zardari’s close aide detained

Staff Reporter


The State Bank circle of the Federal Investigation Agency has detained Hussain Lawai, who is considered a close aide of PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari over charges of allegedly laundering over Rs25 billion.
Lawai was stopped from flying to Dubai last Tuesday as inquiries against him were underway since 2015. His name, however, was not placed on exit-control list.
Director of FIA’s Sindh chapter, Munir Sheikh said Lawai, who was also elected as the chairman of the board of Pakistan Stock Exchange in May, was facing charges of laundering money through 29 fake accounts.
