ISLAMABAD: Former president Asif Ali Zardari on Friday was shifted to Adiala Jail on a three-day judicial remand in connection mega money laundering case.
Zardari was produced before Judge Muhammad Bashir in an accountability court by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) personnel earlier today.
The NAB prosecutor asked the court to extend Zardari’s remand in light of the recent developments in the case.
Zardari’s counsel, Sardar Latif Khosa responded that his client had already said that he be given a 90-day remand at once. “NAB officials ask for a four-day remand then again ask for a new remand. These repeated appearances are only causing losses to the national treasure,” the counsel said.
Zardari questioned on the rostrum why he wasn’t allowed to meet his daughter Aseefa Bhutto Zardari despite the court’s permission. The court then remarked that the PPP co-chairman be allowed to meet his daughter.
