Former President Asif Zardari gets a blow from the Accountability Court
ISLAMABAD - An accountability court has turned down a plea of former president Asif Ali Zardari seeking permission to meet his lawyer, GNN reported.
PPP’s co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari's request for a meeting with his lawyer Farooq H. Naek in fake accounts case was heard by Judge Muhammad Bashir.
The applicant pleaded court to permit Farooq Naek to meet the PPP leader any other day except Monday, as the lawyer was unable to meet his client owing to his personal engagements.
Accountability Judge Muhammad Bashir, rejecting the request, directed the lawyer to hold a meeting with the PPP leader on the fixed day for meetings.
While giving remarks, accountability judge said everyone was a witness how badly the lawyer misbehaved with him last time. He added that people take you for granted if you are lenient.
