ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to proceed against the former President Asif Ali Zardari in the acquittal case from the NAB Court.

NAB has decided to challenge the acquittal by an accountability court of Pakistan Peoples Party Co chairman Asif Ali Zardari in a corruption case.

Sources informed on Monday that the NAB has decided to file an appeal in the Lahore High Court against the Rawalpindi accountability court’s decision to acquit Zardari in a case related to the illegal accumulation of assets.

Sources added that the NAB’s prosecution branch is working on drafting the appeal.

On Saturday, Justice Khalid Mehmood Ranjha of accountability court I, accepted Zardari’s plea for acquittal, observing that the NAB reference against him has no legal standing.
