Accountability Court gives decision over physical remand of former President Asif Zardari

*ISLAMABAD: An accountability court in Islamabad on Friday extended physical remand of former president Asif Ali Zardari for eleven days in the mega money laundering case.*

Accountability Judge Muhammad Arshad Malik announced this verdict on a plea by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) demanding a 14-day extension in the former president’s remand.

He directed the corruption watchdog to produce the accused on the next hearing on July 2.

A NAB team presented Zardari before the court upon completion of his previous 11-day physical remand.

NAB prosecutor Sardar Muzaffar requested the judge to hand over the custody of the accused to the bureau for 14 days for interrogation in connection with its investigation into the case.
