ISLAMABAD: Former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur have at last appeared before the Federal Investigation Agency JIT probing the money laundering scam.
They recorded their statement before the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) team in the money laundering case.
FIA Additional DG Najaf Mirza, who chaired a meeting at the agency's Islamabad office earlier today, probed Zardari and Talpur.
Theformer president and his sister were questioned for around 35 minutes. According to sources, Zardari avoided answering some questions.
Speaking to the media after his questioning, Zardari said, "Unfortunately the money laundering case was formed against him during former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's tenure."
The FIA on Saturday issued notices for a fourth time to the former president and his sister to appear at the agency’s headquarters in Islamabad.
Zardari's counsel Farooq Naik earlier denied that FIA's case includes money laundering charges.
The FIA has to submit a reportin the Supreme Court regarding the ongoing probe on Tuesday.
