An accountability court extended on Monday the physical remand of former president Asif Ali Zardari in the money laundering through fake accounts case.
The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairperson was presented before the court by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) today. PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto was also present in the court. NAB requested Judge Mohammad Bashir to extend the remand as it needed to further investigate Zardari, local media reported.
The court accepted NAB’s plea and extended the physical remand of Zardari by 10 days. Judge Bashir directed NAB to present Zardari before the court again on August 8.
Meanwhile, the accountability court has also extended the remand of PPP’s Faryal Talpur for 10 days. The burea has been directed to present the PPP leader by August 10.
