National Accountability Bureau’s Chairman has signed arrest warrants of Former President Asif Ali Zardari. The warrants have been issued in the fake accounts case. The NAB officials claim that the offense is non-bailable.
It is to be noted that an accountability court in Islamabad has already indicted Asif Ali Zardari in the fake account scam last month.
A division bench of the IHC comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani will take up today Zardari’s petition seeking confirmation of his pre-arrest bail in the bank transaction case.
The court had granted pre-arrest interim bail to the former president in this case on June 18, 2019.
Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur have been facing multiple cases, based on a mega money laundering scandal involving fictitious transactions worth Rs35 billion allegedly conducted through ‘benami’ bank accounts.
