Former President Asif Zardari granted bail by SHC

KARACHI– The Sindh High Court (SHC) has granted protective bail to former president Asif Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur for 10 days in the mega money laundering case.

The court ordered them to furnish the surety bonds, ordering them to appear before the accountability court.

Moreover, the court also approved the pre-arrest bail of Asif Zardari in the Park Lane case.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Sindh High Court (SHC) issued notices to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) director general and prosecutor for March 26 in a petition challenging transfer of the mega money laundering case.

Farooq H Naik, counsel for Asif Zardari and Faryal Talpur, contended that the SC had not ordered to transfer the case to Rawalpindi.

On the other hand, the SHC dismissed the applications of Asif Zardari and Faryal Talpur seeking stay order against the transfer of the case.

On Saturday, Asif Zardari had challenged the verdict of the banking court. He pleaded that the banking court’s verdict should be declared null and void. He stated that the decision to shift the case to Rawalpindi is illegal.
