Sindh government files review petition in Supreme Court on behalf of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari

*ISLAMABAD: The Sindh government filed a review petition on behalf of Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto in the Supreme court (SC), pertaining to the fake bank accounts case.*

The plea filed on Friday, requested the top court to review paragraph 29-35 in the verdict announced on Jan 7 that ordered the removal of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah from the exit control list.

“Shifting the hearing of fake bank accounts case to Islamabad will create problems,” read the petition. “This will create hindrance in conducting a transparent trial.”

It added that all the inquiry records pertaining to the case should be handed over to NAB Karachi division. “Further inquiries into the case should be carried out in Karachi.”

The submitted petition concluded that, “if a NAB reference is prepared then it should be submitted in Karachi.”

The review further objected to inclusion of intelligence agency officials in the joint investigation team of fake accounts case.

The plea said the SC had ordered to remove Bilawal’s name from the JIT, which could not materialise. “In the written verdict, there is no mention of removal of Bilawal’s name,” the review plea has objected.
