Former President Asif Zardari's petition rejected by Accountability Court
ISLAMABAD – Former President Asif Ali Zardari petition rejected by Accountability Court.
As per media report, accountability court in Islamabad on Tuesday rejected a petition filed by former president Asif Ali Zardari, who has been put in jail on judicial remand, seeking his shift to a hospital for medical care.
The court remarked that the court doesn’t have jurisdiction over the matter, and it should be referred to the relevant forum.
Yesterday, Judge Muhammad Bashir reserved a verdict in the same application after hearing arguments from Zardari’s advocate Latif Khosa.
Khosa argued before the court that his client’s life was in danger and it was his Constitutional right to avail medical facilities in the jail.
