ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court extended the pre-arrest bail of Asif Ali Zardari and Faryal Talpur till June 10th in Fake Bank Accounts Case.
Pakistan People’s Party leader and ex-president of Pakistan, Zardari had sought another extension over the pre-arrest bail in money laundering case filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on the orders of Supreme Court of Pakistan.
The court got angry at Investigating Officer Muhammad Ali Abro for giving contradictory statements. One of the judges remarked that a “responsible person should appear in court instead”.
Abro even failed to tell the court about all the inquiries ongoing against Zardari. He said that all inquiries have different investigating officers and he doesn’t know all the details. The judges chided him for being irresponsible.
NAB prosecutor, on the other hand, said that Zardari and Talpur transferred an amount worth Rs150 million to the account of a man named Owais Muzzaffar.
