Asif Zardari and Faryal Talpur cannot travel abroad

ISLAMABAD: PPP Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari and former MNA Faryal Talpur have been barred from traveling abroad.

Their names have been placed on the stop list, a subcategory of the Exit Control List , at the behest of the Supreme Court. The FIA is investigating their involvement in a money laundering case.

Talha Raza, Aslam Raza and Adeel Shah Rashidi are also not allowed to travel abroad.

The Supreme Court took notice of the FIA’s investigation into a massive money laundering case involving billions of rupees. The case involves 29 fake accounts made at three banks that have reportedly been used to funnel stolen money and kickbacks.

The vice-chairperson of Summit Bank, Hussain Lawai, who is also a close aide of Zardari, has already been arrested in the case.

On July 8, the Supreme Court held a hearing where it summoned the heads of Summit Bank, Sindh Bank and UBL to appear before it. APP/AFP
